All applications must be made using the central university postgraduate application form.
Please read the postgraduate step by step guide for help with the application process. The course code is P-F343 (PhD - Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems). Please include 'HetSys' for the 'Research Group or area of interest', and add 'HetSys' along with the title of the PhD research project or projects that you are interested in.
