How To Apply


Detailed information about applying to study at The University of Aberdeen is given in the Student Recruitment and Admissions Service pages. 


The processing of applications for a Taught Masters Programme or a Research Degree within the College of Physical Sciences is dealt with by the Graduate School Admissions Unit. The unit works closely with Academic Selectors, one for each of the taught programmes, and with the Research Postgraduate Co-ordinators, one in each discipline, who decide if an offer of a place should be made.

The unit can give you advice up to the point that you start your studies, including queries about:

  • Entry requirements
  • The application process and other procedural matters
  • Availability of funding

If you wish to apply for a specific PhD studentship we would ask that you make informal contact with the named supervisor before applying.
