You are required to submit a research proposal as part of your application for a PhD. In order to ensure that there is sufficient research expertise within the Faculty to supervise your project, it is recommended that you contact a member of academic staff to discuss your proposal. The academic can then advise if there is a potential supervisor available for this topic.
