How to apply
Research students may commence their studies in September or January (with September being the main admissions date). The deadline to apply for the September entry is the 15 th of August 2014 and for January 2015 - the 31 st of November 2014. However, we strongly advise that you apply as soon as possible in order to be guaranteed a place on the course.
How your application is considered
Several factors will be taken into consideration when the decision to offer a place or not is made. The academic merit of the applicant will be one. Other important factors will be whether or not the topic chosen is appropriate for study at MPhil level; whether the University's library facilities are adequate to support that study; and whether there are members of staff available with the expertise to supervise the chosen topic.
If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry. In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.
