We would normally expect students starting a PhD or MPhil to hold a first class or a good second-class undergraduate degree. In many cases PhD and MPhil applicants have studied to MA level, though this is not compulsory.
We are able to accept students on a distance-learning basis, but they should have already acquired the skills taught in the introductory seminars, or should make arrangements to attend equivalent seminars at another institution, at their own expense. Students whose first language is not English are expected to have achieved a TOEFL score of at least 600, with a TWE (written score) of 4; or an IELTS score of at least 7+.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
The award recognises studying abroad as a positively life changing experience for many students as well as promoting intercultural understanding and tolerance. Successful candidates will receive up to £10,000 to be applied toward the cost of tuition fees.
