You should have a degree that has been taken since 2001 from a recognised university with a score of 5.0 out of 6.0. If you are applying for finance, engineering or science based subjects, you must have studied a similar field in your undergraduate degree.
Each of Aston's Schools of Study has a number of research groups with the potential to host PhD students. Research specialisms include finance, economics, marketing, organisational psychology, bioenergy, knowledge engineering, photonics, languages, biomedical sciences, neurosciences, health sciences and more.
All PhD applicants need to contact the research groups direct with their individual research proposal. Find out more on Aston's Postgraduate research pages.
