Overview

A PhD is one of the most ambitious and exciting things you can do in your life. Upon successful completion you will be a doctor - and a world authority in your chosen area.

Each year several thousand graduate students apply to do a PhD at universities in the UK. Many are not successful - they are unable to find a suitable university, or a supervisor, or decide on a suitable research project, or they cannot obtain funding to pay their fees and bills. Most students fail to obtain a PhD because they have one of these aspects wrong at the start.

The PhD Application Handbook is the first comprehensive handbook for people wishing to apply for a PhD in the UK. It provides a step-by-step guide to PhDs, explaining: what a PhD is, how to apply for your PhD, how to find the right university, supervisor and project.

It also provides detailed information about funding, eligibility, deadlines for different awards, and which funding is best for which student. Examples of research proposals, application forms and interview technique are given, helping you to secure your PhD place with the minimum of problems.

The PhD Application Handbook is designed to help prospective PhD students achieve their ambition. If you want to do a doctorate in the UK, this book is essential for you!
