Our funded positions for PhDs starting in 2019 are now filled. Applications for positions starting in October 2020 will open in October 2019, with a deadline of the end of January 2020. Details on the application process will be available on this page once the applications open.
As usual, we will have fully funded studentships available, though these generally are only available for UK/EU students. Our main source of studentships (STFC funding) also requires that you have been based in the UK for the past 3 years.
We do have other sources of funding for non-UK-resident and International students, but if you wish to apply for these it is essential that you contact us in December or earlier, as deadlines vary and a completed application (with references and interview) is usually needed before the Christmas break. See the funding page for more details.
However your studies are to be funded, in order to start a PhD with us you must meet the academic requirements, and pass an interview. If you do not have English as your first language, you must also meet the "Standard" level English language requirements before starting your studies.
