Computer Science PhD
The minimum academic entry requirements for a Doctorate programme are either:
i) a 2:1 UK Honours degree in a discipline directly relevant to the PhD
ii) an undergraduate degree at 2:1 or above and Masters award at Merit level in a discipline directly relevant to the PhD, or equivalent international qualifications
Whilst the most common first degree is Computer Science, we also consider students with backgrounds in an appropriate subject for the research topic (e.g. mathematics, physics, engineering, biology and medicine).
The school may require a 1st Class Honours degree or international equivalent for some research projects. This requirement is specified at the discretion of the academic supervisor involved under the relevant advertised project.
Students whose first language is not English must obtain the required English language score indicated below:
IELTS: greater than or equal to 6.5 overall (with a 6.5 in the written component and no other subtest below 5.5)
IBT TOEFL greater than or equal to 90 overall (with 22 in the written component and no other subtest below 20)
English language test validity: Some English Language test results are only valid for two years. Your English Language test results must be valid on the start date of your course.
