Graduate Admissions

Course closed:

Scientific Computing is no longer accepting new applications.

Apply using the Applicant Portal

The Apply Now button on the right will take you to the Applicant Portal, where you can create and submit your application and supporting documents, and request references.

An application is only complete when:

  1. you have submitted your application and supporting documents via the Applicant Portal
  2. you have paid the £50 application fee
  3. your referees have provided their references.

If you miss the deadlines specified in this section, you will not be able to submit your application.

Candidates are encouraged to pay particular attention to the section on the application form where their choice of research area must be stated. Their choice must be identified at this stage, so that their application can be forwarded to an appropriate supervisor for consideration. Alternatively, if a specific supervisor has been identified, they can be named in the appropriate box in the application form.

All applications are considered as they are received (rolling admissions). However, the Centre for Scientific Computing operates an internal review date once a year, normally between December and March, in order to make decisions on offers and then to allocate funding. Each year the deadlines to submit applications for consideration in the internal review round are advertised on the Graduate Admissions website.

Any applications received after the internal review date will be considered but funding opportunities may be limited.

Please note that applications are only accepted for Michaelmas term entry.

Selection Process

Selected candidates will be interviewed by Skype, telephone or in person.
