Funding deadlines for admission in 2014 can be found here
The next major funding deadline is CHESS.
UK and EU applicants for MPhil/PhD will be automatically considered for CHESS (formerly DRS) if they have applied for admission by 10 January 2014. There is no separate application form.
The Institute of Astronomy does not routinely offer the one-year M.Phil. degree. However, occasionally, it is possible for students, normally with certain one-year scholarships, notably Churchill and Marshall Scholars, to pursue a one-year M.Phil. in Astronomy.
The degree is exclusively by research and a project and supervisor will have been identified during the application process. There is no taught element and this course is not suitable for physicists and mathematicians wishing to prepare for a research Ph.D. in astronomy.
Before making a formal application, prospective applicants should forward the following to email@example.com:
Following receipt of this information, we will determine whether an appropriate project and supervisor is available.
Please note that the application deadline for admission to this course in October 2014 is 3 December 2013.
