PhD project application process
Please read the information about the application process carefully. Applications that do not comply with the outlined specifications cannot be considered.
Information for international applicants
Most non-EEA students coming to study in the UK will need a Tier 4 visa - the UK's main 'student' visa category. Your Tier 4 visa will allow you to stay in the UK for the whole of your course and comes with both privileges and restrictions.
