Comment

How to apply −

Applicants should begin by contacting a member of staff whose research interests seem most relevant to their own ideas and interests (see under staff research). Informal enquiries and expressions of interest are very welcome. With the approval of a potential academic supervisor, students should then seek to develop a clear and focussed idea of their research topic in the form of a well-written proposal. This should act as a prelude to completing an online application.
