General requirements

We are happy to consider equivalent qualifications (for instance, you may have studied different subjects at undergraduate and masters level but have worked in and/or developed an interest in your sector since then).
  • You will also need to provide evidence that you are ready to pursue the project you propose in your application. This will take the form of a research proposal.
  • If English is not your first language, you must have proficiency in written and spoken English (normally a minimum test score of 6.5 for IELTS, or equivalent).
