The steps below show the process you need to follow to make an application.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact the Institute of Human Resource Management or a member of staff in the Office of International Affairs.
Before making an application you need to find a Professor who is willing to be your Ph.D. advisor. By looking at the Professor profiles and their research interests, you can identify who you think would be a suitable advisor for you.
You then need to make contact with the Professor (e.g. via e-mail). The Professor may ask you about your research interests, past experience, academic qualifications, language skills and reasons for wanting to study a Ph.D. It would probably be helpful to send the Professor a copy of your CV when you first make contact, with a cover letter explaining your interests. After you have made contact with the Professor and discussed your research interests and the Ph.D. program with him/her - the Professor will decide if he/she is willing to be your advisor and support your application.
Once a Professor agrees to be your advisor (subject to you being accepted onto the program) – you can then submit a formal application to the University. If you are applying for a scholarship from the Office of International Affairs (OIA) at the University, your advisor's signature may be needed as evidence that you have found a Professor who is willing to be your Ph.D. advisor on the program.
