How to apply

Projects which have funding attached (e.g. through research councils, university funding or industry sponsorship) are advertised on our online prospectus and do not require a research proposal.

For self-funded projects or those funded by third party sponsors, you are strongly advised to contact our School research team before making an application. This will allow us to ensure that supervision is available and that your proposal falls into an area of established expertise. It also helps us put you in touch with our academics if you want to discuss your ideas informally before you apply.

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