How to apply

 

1. Visit www.ntu.ac.uk/research/research-degrees-at-ntu/how-to-apply to download an NTU Research Degree Application Form (which must be completed in addition to this form) and the guidance notes for completing the form and your application.

 

2. Read and understand the application guidance notes. These include eligibility criteria, entry requirements, subject areas, stipend rates and instructions how to complete the application.

 

3. Apply for a place at Nottingham Trent University:

 

Complete the NTU Research Degree Application Form with all your personal details and information on your qualifications, employment and any research training or experience you have.

 

Please provide any relevant certificates, transcripts (translated into English if applicable) as part of the application. (Please note: If you have not finished your current course, please indicate this clearly on your application form)

 

Research Proposal: You will need to produce a 1,000 – 2,000 word statement with your application (but see advice below on the alternative form required for the Research Proposal if you are applying for the School of Science and Technology).

 

This statement must clearly describe:

 

• the subject you wish to research, and;
• the research question(s) you wish to investigate, and;
• why it interests you, and;
• how you propose to research it, and;
• how your proposed project relates to other work in the field, and;
• how you think your project might contribute to understanding of your subject

 

You also need to include an outline timetable and a bibliography.

 

If you are applying to the School of Science and Technology, your Research Proposal needs instead to be a short statement – no more than one side of A4 – with your application. This statement must identify:

 

• the research area or topic that you wish to study, and;

• identify a potential supervisor at NTU that you would like to work with – if you have one in mind.

 

Final agreement on your research project will be reached before we can make any offer of a place at NTU.

 

Provide the names of two academic referees. For example, these could be tutors who have taught you during your undergraduate or Master’s degree (but not any of your proposed supervisors).

 

4. Complete the 2019 NTU PhD Studentship Funding Application Form. In addition to following the steps above to apply for a place on the PhD programme, you will need to complete our supplementary PhD Studentship form if you wish to apply for funding from the 2019 Nottingham Trent University PhD Studentship Scheme. This supplementary form will be used as part of our selection process. This supplementary form outlines your proposed subject area, supervisory team, if a potential supervisor has been contacted, and a brief summary of your research proposal and
experience.

 

What is a completed application?

 

All complete applications must contain the following:

 

• Completed NTU Research Degree Application Form, and;
• Research Proposal, and;
• Certificates and transcripts (including English translation where necessary), and;
