Further information

Prior to formal application, students need to give consideration to the specific research topic they wish to investigate. This should be determined in consultation with a Faculty academic staff member in order to see whether the Faculty can provide appropriate supervision and whether the candidate is familiar enough with the research area to be able to undertake specialised study in that field. After consultation with a member of academic staff, applicants should write an 800-1200 word statement indicating the area in which the research is to be conducted. This statement should include: a proposed topic, a budget proposal for resources required for project, prior research conducted that relates to the proposal, literature references that provide relevant background, possible research methodologies (where relevant) and the name of the potential supervisor within the Faculty.
