- You should either hold a Masters qualification at the time of application or be able to state that you will have completed one by the time your PhD begins (even though the result may not be known and the final examination board may not yet have taken place). You can also apply on the basis of having equivalent relevant professional experience in lieu of a Masters qualification.
- For EU applicants, unless you have been living in the UK for 3 years previous to the start of your studentship, EU applicants are awarded an EU fees-only studentship.
