PhD programme started in October 2009.  Two types of entry are available: 4 year PhDs incorporating a 9-month training course and a number of 3-year PhDs for those already holding an MSc or other professional qualifications or experience.

The projects with the best applicants will be awarded the funding. The funding is only available to applicants that meet the Non-UK Students criteria.

In most cases if you have the correct qualifications and access to your own funding, either from your home country or your own finances, your application to work with the supervisors listed in the research projects will be considered.
