For PhD, normally, a first-class or upper second-class Honours degree, or overseas equivalent, plus a Masters degree in a relevant area.
How to apply?
If you're interested in studying for a PhD in JMC, the first thing you need to do is to find out if there’s a supervisor available to oversee your studies. You can find that information in the supervisor's tab.
The other key element is your research proposal. Read our guidelines on writing proposals.
Applications are via our Pegasus online portal using the apply buttons below.
When applying, you'll be asked to upload:
- your research proposal
- scans of degree certificates/transcripts
- two academic reference letters (if it would be easier for you, you can ask your referees to send their letters direct to firstname.lastname@example.org placing your name and the word "reference" in the subject line)
- confirmation of funding
If you're an international applicant and don’t have a degree from a UK University (or a University where the primary medium of instruction is English), you'll also be required to provide an IELTS certificate (overall minimum band score of 7 with no individual test score below 6.5).
Most PhD students start in October, so they move forward as one cohort, but you can start at any time of year (people often have to defer until they find funding). Keep an eye on our funding databases (PGR Opportunities and University Scholarships) for any forthcoming Strathclyde research studentship opportunities.
