Apply for a Research Degree

Applications for research degrees starting in October 2019 are open and will be submitted through the UAL online applications system.

There are 2 deadlines for applications, one for those wishing to be considered for AHRC funding, and one for all other applications. Please note, you may only apply to 1 College – we cannot guarantee that an application will be considered if it is sent to multiple Colleges.

Applications are only processed after each deadline has passed and it may take a few weeks for your application to be assessed and an update provided via the online application system.


  • 9am on Monday 12 November 2018 (applicants wishing to be considered for AHRC funding must apply to this deadline)
  • 9am on Monday 15 April 2019 (non-AHRC funding applicants deadline)
