  2. For applicants whose first language is not English, IELTS overall score of 6.5 with no component below 6.0.
  3. Applicants cannot apply for this funding if currently engaged in doctoral study at Northumbria or elsewhere.

In order to apply, applicants need to submit the following information:

  1. A fully completed application form (all sections must be completed).
  2. Evidence of academic qualifications (certificates and transcripts).
  3. Evidence of accepted English language proficiency for applicants whose first language is not English.
  4. A 1,000 word research proposal, outlining your area of research; please note that even if you are applying for a specific research vacancy with a pre-defined research proposal, you are still required to write a proposal expanding on the provided description of the project.

Shortlisted candidates will be contacted by Northumbria PGR Admissions via email regarding the interview date.
