How to apply
Advice to applicants
We recommend all research applicants attempt to find a suitable supervisor here at Manchester by browsing the subject website and looking at the staff list . Our web profiles include our emails, so you can easily contact us if you wish.
It is in the nature of research that it is exploratory and breaks new ground, and we can help you judge what areas you might most profitably explore.
Find out more on the how to apply page.
Please note that we do not teach evening classes or offer distance learning courses.
The University requires an interview for all applicants to whom we consider making an offer.
Interviews will be conducted by two academics, usually the proposed main supervisor and the subject PGR Director (or an assigned representative).
The interview can be either face-to-face or via Skype, conference call or email.
The interview serves several purposes, allowing us to:
- get a better picture of your ability to carry out the proposed doctoral project than the research proposal on its own;
- tell you what the proposed supervisor(s) can bring to the project;
- discuss with you directly any potential problems with the practical aspects of your studies and explore solutions together.
