First of all, you have to get accepted as a PhD student at QMUL. Please find all necessary information (application
forms, etc.) under this link. If
you need funding, please note that according to a certain procedure,
there are some PhD studentships available from our School. Please check
out the above link for details. If you are planning
please contact me beforehand. You need to explain in your application
that you want to work with me on a Ph.D. project, by roughly
describing your own research interests, and that we have already been
in touch on a project. A more detailed research proposal is not needed.
Note, however, that such studentships are
rare and the competition is tough,
hence you must be an outstanding candidate submitting an outstanding
If you come with your own money, decisions about mere acceptance to our
school are made continuously throughout the year.
Another way to get funding would be to apply for some Ph.D.
scholarship at some organisation:
Of course, this list is not exhaustive. Unfortunately, for British students the possibilities to apply for individual Ph.D.
scholarships seem to be almost non-existent. These
scholarships are nowadays essentially distributed directly by the single Colleges.
If the conditions under point 1 of the previous webpage are fulfilled,
I could offer to
support your application for funding by some Letter of Invitation. If
you are getting
accepted as a PhD student at QMUL, note that there are
opportunities to earn some money by doing undergraduate
teaching, but that will not be enough to pay your tuition fees or
your full living
If you already succeeded to get some money for your Ph.D.
other sources, please apply at QMUL as indicated above. If you are
getting accepted, we might start right away on some research project.
However, before collaborating we should ideally get to know each other. Hence, I would highly
recommend that you try to present yourself to me / at our institute
due occasion, perhaps by giving a talk about some previous (masters
level) work of yours.
