Students wishing to pursue studies for MPhil/PhD degrees should include a proposal of around 1500 words on their chosen research topic with their completed application form. The proposal should include the research methodology to be utilised and justification for the research which must make an original contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. Guidelines for preparing research proposals are available from the research office. Application forms should also be accompanied by copies of all current qualifications, proof of identity, details of who will be responsible for the payment of tuition fees and two academic references.
Applicants wishing to apply for research degrees must have a bachelor’s degree with honours, or a masters degree in a relevant discipline. Students wishing to enroll for a PhD will normally be required to enrol for an MPhil in the first instance. All overseas students will be required to provide an IELTS with a minimum score of 7.0. (An equivalent English language qualification acceptable to the University may be considered.)
