The second round of applications for the academic year 2021-2022 will open on February 22, 2021 with a deadline of March 26, 2021.

Each application is put through a highly selective process; it is read with the care, deliberation, and seriousness it deserves by the professors in the field of specialisation. Final decisions are made by the Doctoral Programme Board, so whilst you could identify potential supervisors researching in your field of interest, it is not necessary to contact them to agree on supervision prior to application. 

Our application form has been designed to enable you to communicate your academic accomplishments and ambitions. We recommend that you begin the application process early as preparing an application for a Doctoral Programme is a long process and may take time, not only to complete the online application but also to write your research proposal. Preparing the English test may also take time. 

Applications are paperless only: all applicants must use the online application.

All of the questions are given in English: please answer all questions in English.
