Your first step before applying is to visit our research degrees webpage to find out more about the areas of research available and details of the application process. For an informal discussion about any of these projects please contact the relevant named supervisor.

Applicants will normally have a track record of high academic achievement, relevant to the discipline being applied to, demonstrated by a first class or high upper second undergraduate honours degree and/or a master's degree (or equivalent) and supported by two academic references. The ability to work independently, with the support of a supervisory team, and the enthusiasm to contribute to a vibrant and stimulating research environment are essential.

Students who hold Masters level qualifications from outside the UK must send copies of their diplomas, copies of their transcripts (with a certified translation into English of their transcript if it is not in English) to the RKE Centre.

Students currently enrolled in a Masters qualification who expect to graduate before starting a doctorate may apply, but must submit with their application portfolio a separate recommendation letter from their current University (if not Winchester) that predicts the standing of their expected qualification. This is in addition to two references.
