Before completing an application form, we recommend that applicants to the School's postgraduate research degree programmes first check the list of research projects currently available on our Research Opportunities page or visit the Biomedical Sciences, Neurosciences or Health Sciences area pages. 

All these projects have been proposed by Aston's Life and Health Sciences researchers. Applicants may also contact our researchers directly with their own relevant research proposals.

Applicants for PhD opportunities are accepted for registration with effect from 1 January,
1 April, 1 July and 1 October unless otherwise stated.  

Once you have checked that you have met the entry requirements, you may then apply
online using the online application form. Please use the online application guidance
