How to apply
Advice to applicants
Please note, due to the high volume of applications we receive the course may close before the advertised deadline and as such, early application is advised.
If you meet our entry requirements but we are unable to make you an offer you may be placed on a waiting list. Candidates on a waiting list will receive an offer only if places become available.
If you wish to do a PhD after your course, you are usually expected to have an idea of the topic or project they are thinking of doing at PhD level. An outline allows us to judge whether the appropriate supervision is likely to be available and to assign supervisors who are interested in seeing the project through.
The structure of the course is based on the principle that students have a specific interest or set of interests that they wish to develop. You are welcome to contact individual members of staff who you think might be potential supervisors or you can contact the director of the course for advice. In any case, it is useful to have a written outline of your intended research.
If you intend to take the course as a stand-alone degree, it is not necessary to have a research proposal, but it is useful for us to have an indication of your general areas of interest in social anthropology.
