How to apply

Projects which have funding attached (e.g. through research councils, university funding or industry sponsorship) are advertised on our online prospectus. The documents you will need to submit vary by funding scheme and are described in our prospectus.

For self-funded projects or those funded by third party sponsors, you are strongly advised to contact our academic members of staff before making an application. Discussing your ideas informally with a member of staff who is doing research in the area you are interested in is the best way to ensure that supervision is available and that your proposal falls into an area where we have strong expertise.

Our School research team is also available to help if you have trouble finding a member of staff that you think would be a suitable supervisor for your project.

If you wish to make an application, you will also need to submit a research proposal.
