How to apply


Step 1 - Start Date

WMS now supports a virtual academy where students apply to start their Research Degree in line with the academic year. This ensures that our students never feel isolated and feel part of a cohort whilst completing their studies.

Application Deadlines:
  • 30th September 2024 cohort - applicants must apply by no later than end of June 2024.
  • Applications will close earlier for students who require a visa to study in the UK, to allow time to receive a CAS and complete the visa application process.
  • Applicants are required to meet all offer conditions and receive an unconditional offer by 30th August 2024. If an unconditional offer is not received by this date your application will be withdrawn by the department.

Step 2 - Project

Applicants are now required to apply for division approved projects. This ensures that your project has been reviewed and scrutinised to ensure it is the best the project can be, before you begin.

Before applying please choose one of our approved projects found by division below or alternatively approach one of our approved Supervisors and develop a project together.

Step 3 - Application

When making your application, please make sure to state which project you wish to be considered for in the Research Project field and state the supervisor.
