Postgraduate application form

How to Apply

Prospective applicants are advised to study the department's Research Pages to get a flavour of the ongoing research within the department.

Applicants need not submit a detailed research proposal with their application, though they are welcome to do so if they wish. However, they should indicate which area of research they wish to pursue and/or the names of staff members they would be interested in working with.

In addition we often have specific funded studentships, which are promoted in our Research Vacancies section

For an informal discussion and general advice and information on postgraduate research within the Department please contact our Research Theme Leader.

If you wish to be considered for a studentship for entry in October your application should reach the university by the end of June of the same year at the latest, however you are strongly advised to apply as soon as possible. In addition to October registration, applicants may apply for entry in December, April and July of each year, though in general studentships become less available with time throughout the year. In each case, applications should be received at least 4 months prior to start. If you wish to be considered for a studentship you should state this clearly on your application form. To be considered for funding applicants should have, or expect to obtain, at least an upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a materials or related subject area.

Research applications are handled centrally at the University and should be submitted online. Your application must be supported by documentary evidence of entry qualifications (including English language where appropriate), academic transcripts and references.

After applying you can upload your supporting documents at any time during the year by returning to your application in the Application Portal, and clicking on 'View/Upload Documents'.
