It is expected that applicants will possess at least a good 2nd class honours degree. However, all applications are considered on an individual basis and holders of other qualifications are welcome to apply. The minimal qualification for PhD applicants is: a good bachelor's degree in a relevant subject, an excellent research proposal. However, a Master's degree is often preferred as evidence of some experience in research. Holders of other qualifications are welcome to apply.
