Applications for PhD study are different to other university courses. For one thing, you won't be applying to a course.
Instead you'll be seeking to show that you're the right candidate to fill an advertised PhD position, or complete the research project you've proposed.
The articles here are designed to help you do that.
We've explained how PhD interviews work (and previewed some of the questions you might be asked). We've also looked at common postgraduate entry tests and provided some advice on eligibility criteria for doctoral research.
All that's left is to wish you good luck. So. . . good luck!
