The Admissions and Access service in the university will check your application is complete and we have all the documents we need, such as degree certificates and transcripts. Once we have verified your certificates, we will send the application to the relevant university school for staff to consider the academic merit of your proposed research topic. To make sure your application is dealt with as quickly as possible, please include all required documents. Please be aware, it can take a number of months for the school to consider your application. Thank you for your patience during this time.
