You apply online, track your application and contact the admissions team via our applicant portal. Our step by step guide can help you on your way.
You can enter course code 4852F or use the search function on the programme of study tab and search for Master of Research in Cloud Computing for Big Data as your chosen programme of study. Upon successful completion of the first year, you will transfer to the PhD programme.
We ask that candidates apply for the MRes year and PhD at the same time, so you only need to submit one set of references.
Make a note in your application for the PhD, that you are part of the EPSRC CDT in Cloud Computing for Big Data and any offer will then be made conditional on your completion of year one.
Entry requirementsEntry requirements
To be considered for admission to this programme, students must have (or expect to get) at least a II(i) Honors Degree (or equivalent) in computing science, mathematics, statistics or another strongly quantitative discipline.
We will also consider applicants on an individual basis with lower or non-standard qualifications if they have relevant professional experience in computing or statistics and a strong interest in the other.
There is also significant funding for equipment, research costs, and local, national and international travel (e.g. conferences and placements).
We have capacity to train up to 20 doctoral students each year.
Applicants that are unsuccessful, or not eligible, for one of our studentships but that are still accepted for the programme will need to:
- demonstrate that they can meet the cost of the fees, and
- can support themselves financially for the full four years of the programme.
The current fees are:
- £4,450 per annum for UK and EU domiciled students
- £15,635 per annum for international students
