Prospective PhD or MPhil Students will find the handbook useful as it gives an indication of the diversity of research within the Department.

How To Apply

  • Attend the MDHS DISCOVER RESEARCH Expo and the Department information session.
  • Download the Research Project book for a list of prospective projects and supervisors.
  • You need to identify a potential project and supervisor from the Research Project Handbook. Read the project description and any recommended publications to ensure that it is the correct choice for you.
  • Contact the Laboratory Head of the Research group and provide them with your curriculum vitae (CV) and academic transcript and arrange a meeting to discuss the project in more detail.
  • In some cases, supervisors may be willing to offer you a provisional place in their laboratory (a provisional offer indicates that you have a guaranteed place in the Honours course providing you satisfy all of the entry requirements).
