Application Procedure:

How to Apply:  Applicants can apply via online mode.

  1. Make contact with your department. As a first step, you should check with the Director of Postgraduate Research Studies in your School or Department that your proposed research can be supervised by the Department. Directors will also be able to match you with a potential supervisor.
  2. Apply for a place of admission. You will then need to submit an application for admission to a PhD programme in your chosen subject via our online admissions portal. If you are not sure which programme you should apply to, consult with your Director of Postgraduate Research Studies. The admissions application must be for admission in October 2019. If you have an existing application for a different start date you can request the start date be changed by emailing. In the ‘Scholarships applied for’ box which appears within the Funding Section of your online application, quote ‘International Research Studentship Competition’ in order for your application to be considered in this competition. If you have already applied and did not quote the competition, you should email your name and application number to your School Director of Postgraduate Research Studies to ensure they are aware of your wish to be considered for this funding. The admissions application will usually require a research proposal be uploaded; requirements vary by School.
  3. Prepare a 700 word research proposal. The international studentship competition requires a research proposal with a maximum length of 700 words, excluding title and references.  (If you uploaded a longer research proposal for your admissions application, this can be shortened for the funding competition.)  The proposal can be emailed to your School Director of Postgraduate Research Studies and prospective supervisor.  The research proposal is an important element of the funding decision; it is advisable to consult the Graduate School’s guidance on writing a research proposal and your proposed supervisor.  The research proposal must be your work but your supervisor may guide and advise you on developing and improving the proposal.
