College Admission Requirement

Entrance Requirements: Applicants must have a good first degree in computer science, software engineering, computer engineering or other numerate discipline

English language Requirements: If your first language is not English, we will require evidence that you have the necessary language skills to fulfil the requirements of the award. You will need to provide evidence of a minimum International English Language Testing System Grade 6.5 (IELTS 6.5) with no individual sub-score below 6.0 or equivalent for all research awards. For entry in February 2017 and onwards we require evidence of a minimum International English Language Testing System Grade 7.0 (IELTS 7.0) with no individual sub-score below 6.5. If you have successfully completed a UK bachelors (first or 2.1) or UK masters degree, in the two years before entry, this will suffice for the English language requirements. If you completed your UK degree over two years ago you will still need to demonstrate your English Language by taking an IELTS text.

How to Apply: Application process:

  • Applications should be submitted in writing to one of the research projects listed.
  • Applicants should complete the research student application form and provide a research proposal using the criteria below as a guide.
  • The research proposal can be up to four A4 pages in length (with references as an addition to the four-page proposal) using type Arial 12 point.
  • Applicants should include the research project title.
  • Applicants should use the following ‘Computing Studentships’ as the subject in the email subject line when submitting their applications.

Application Form

Application Deadline: The closing date for applications is midnight on June 18, 2017.
