Information about the Ph.D:

You may be considered for the doctoral programme if you hold, or are currently studying for, an MA (or international equivalent) in a relevant discipline; you should normally also have a first degree in a relevant subject. If in any doubt, contact the Director of Graduate Studies by e-mail to discuss eligibility in advance of applying. Research towards the award of a PhD (three years full-time; five-years part-time) may be undertaken in any of the disciplinary areas covered by the academic interests of staff teaching for the Centre. Interdisciplinary research is encouraged.

You can apply at any time of the academic year, although it is sensible to do this as early as possible, particularly if you are seeking sources of funding. You should include in your application a statement of your research project and a sample of your recent written work (ideally an essay or dissertation chapter from your MA work).

If accepted, you will be accepted and registered initially as an M.Phil student. During the course of your studies, you will be formally upgraded to PhD registration after a monitoring procedure.
