Talk to a supervisor

If you have an idea for a research proposal then we would recommend discussing it with one of our academic supervisors before you start your application. You can use on Find an academic supervisor tool to find someone aligned with your research area to get started.

Funded Phds and studentships

Did you know? You can actually get paid to study your area of interest.

Funded PhD opportunities across our academic schools give you the chance to work on a specific research project and have your fees funded by our university and/or an external partner organisation. They may also include a bursary.
