Application and admission to doctoral studies


To be eligible to become a postgraduate student at the Department of Biology applicants are generally required to have a recognized undergraduate degree. This degree should normally be in a discipline relevant to that in which postgraduate studies are to be pursued, but this requirement can be waived in special circumstances. In addition, each research discipline has other specific requirements, but again these can be waived in special circumstances.

Full details of eligibility can be found in:
