Fees & how to apply

Applicants for MPhil/PhD study are expected to have a first or upper second class degree (or equivalent) in a related discipline.

The first step in applying to study at CAWCS is to find a prospective supervisor. Your supervisor will advise and support your studies throughout your time at CAWCS, ensuring that your MPhil/PhD thesis develops to its full potential and that it meets required standards. Browse our staff profiles to find a member of staff in your subject area, and feel free to e-mail them directly to discuss possible PhD topics – they will be happy to help.

The next step is to put together a research proposal – a 500 to 1000-word overview of the questions and issues you wish to explore in your thesis. To discuss further how we can help you to develop your research ideas, and for initial guidance on the admissions process, contact our Head of Postgraduate Studies.

Annual fees for MPhil/PhD registration are currently (2018/19) £4195 for full-time study and £2097.50 for part-time study.
