*International applications are welcome; please note that the fee waiver covers EU fees only; an international applicant, if successful will be responsible for the difference between EU and international fees.

** Given that the sPhD model is becoming the default model of PhD study, the fee waiver will be prioritised for a sPhD candidate. Potential traditional PhD model students are not precluded from applying in circumstances where they are unable to undertake the sPhD programme.
