Degree awarded: Doctor of Philosophy
Duration: 36 Months. [Full-Time]
Entry requirements: A First or Upper Second Class Honours degree and a taught Masters degree, or their overseas equivalents. For the practice-based PhD, you must demonstrate in your application how your proposed practice will be part of your research process.
For entry in 2010, the fees are £3,500 (£1,750 for part-time) per annum for home/EU students and £11,300 for international students. These figures will be subject to change for entry in 2011.
Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
Scholarships/sponsorships: For subject areas that hold awards in particular years, UK and EU applicants may enter the AHRC Block Grant Partnership competition (deadline 1st March). The complete list of subject areas covered and the number of awards available in each year is listed here . This is highly competitive, and applicants should discuss applying with their proposed supervisor as soon as possible. Some awards are usually offered by the School or department: see the school website for current information, or contact the Admissions Administrator. Some awards are reserved for international applicants.
Number of places/applicants: We anticipate that three places will be available per year. No application information is available, as it is a new course.
