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 initially only apply for the MRes Cloud Computing for Big Data (course code 4852F). Upon successful completion of the MRes you will then be transferred on to the PhD programme. You will be admitted to the MRes independently of a supervisory team and specific research project.
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
