How to apply

Applications for 2016 are currently available

Please have a look at our current list of available projects  and make contact directly with the project supervisor/s to inform them of your interest and to discuss the project (providing your CV at this stage would be worthwhile) before, or whilst submitting your application. We suggest that you select up to three projects that you would be interested in applying for: some supervisors may already have a candidate in mind and when multiple candidates are being considered, additional options will help us to match each candidate to the most suitable project.

Once you are ready to begin the application process, please  apply online through The University of Manchester online application system for postgraduate research programmes. If you are unable to provide all of the required documents at the time of submitting your application, these can be provided by email later (but we do advise that you do this asap). If you are currently studying, it would be useful to see your grades to date. You should be able to get an interim transcript (we know that these grades are often not confirmed) from your course administrator/s.

Fully-funded studentships are available to UK residents. EU nationals resident in the UK more than three years can be considered for most projects. It may also be possible to consider exceptional EU candidates, but an early application would need to be considered.

If you have any questions about this process,  please get in touch
