How do I fill in the application form?
The form can be completed electronically via Adobe Acrobat. If you do not have this software you can download the document and edit it as if it were a Word document. Alternatively you can fill in the form by hand and type your research proposal and personal statement onto separate documents.
Can I attach my proposal separately?
Yes – as long as all the information required is submitted either within or alongside the application form this is fine. If you are submitting your proposal or personal statement separately please make a note of this on the application form.
How do I return it to the PGRSU office?

Do I need to have studied a Masters?
No, in some cases we do accept applications from students who have only been awarded an undergraduate degree. In such cases, candidates may be considered for an MRes initially. If you perform well on your MRes you can then be considered to transfer onto a PhD. Alternatively you can complete and accept the award of the Masters by Research.
Please check our entry requirements to check whether you are eligible.
Can I transfer in to Coventry University?
Yes – if you are interested in transferring to Coventry from another institution please see our pages on the process of transferring.
