The deadline for applications is 1 June 2018.
Applicants are invited to contact the research office on firstname.lastname@example.org or +441202 363334 for an initial discussion about their MPhil/PhD topic.
Alternatively you can make an initial expression of interest by email including a brief outline of no more than 1,000 words explaining your area of interest, reason for study and your relevant academic/professional background.
This will enable the University to make an initial assessment of whether your topic and experience are appropriate for research degree study at AUB before you make a formal application.
Full-time applications should be made direct to AUB through our online application system.
You can also apply for the part-time research degree, can be made here.
Although we welcome applications for study towards a research degree throughout the year, the University has one point of entry at the start of each academic year.
Selected applicants will be invited to attend a formal interview to discuss their proposal.
You will normally be expected to have a Masters Level qualification in an appropriate subject to be considered for registration for MPhil / PhD at AUB.
In some instances, applicants without this requirement may be considered if they can demonstrate appropriate alternative qualifications, professional experience or previous research and an understanding of research methodologies appropriate to their proposed programme of study.
Those for whom English is not a first language will have to pass an International Language Test (IELTS) scoring at least 7.0+ (with a 7.0 in writing).
Applicants should be aware that meeting the University’s minimum entry requirements does not guarantee entry. This is only one of the factors taken into account when the University makes its decision.
Many other factors are also important, such as the availability of suitable supervisors and resources; suitability for research degree study at AUB; relevant experience; and references.
