Please be aware that the selection of students onto our PhD programme is undertaken in the first instance by our Research Sections, in consultation with the relevant academic supervisors. Therefore, before completing the online application form, prospective students are strongly recommended to identify specific research sections, and preferably research groups, whose research topics are of particular interest.
