The information below includes details on how and when to apply for our research programmes. Apply now. As a prospective PhD, MSc Res , or MSt Res student, you will apply to work with an individual supervisor or supervisory team within a School or institute, and not a specific programme of study. It is therefore important that you look at staff research interests within the University and ensure that your project matches an existing area of research.
The School's minimum entry requirement for applying for the PhD and VRS programmes is a good UK Master's degree or overseas equivalent , which is generally in a relevant area to the programme you are applying to. In some cases prior knowledge of a language may be necessary or advisable. Some Departments may have specific entry requirements for their programme, which will be listed on the Departmental pages of the SOAS website. Application deadline The deadline to apply for a Research programme is 5 July Your application will only be initially assessed once your reference have been confidentially submitted by your nominated referee. The Doctoral School Admissions team will check that all required documentation has been provided and that the reference is acceptable and meet our requirements during the initial assessment. Incomplete applications, missing any of the above elements, cannot be considered and will not go forward to the Academic Selectors within the Department for consideration.
