How to apply
In the first instance you should enquire with one of our course administrators:
- At Leeds: SPEME Student Support Office, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- At Sheffield: Mrs Karen Burton (Email: K.a.Burton@sheffield.ac.uk) or Mrs Julie Milner (Email: J.Milner@sheffield.ac.uk)
You should apply to either the University of Leeds or the University of Sheffield. If you choose to apply to the University of Leeds and are accepted by the University of Leeds you will be expected to choose your research project from one of those offered by the University of Leeds. Successful applicants to the University of Sheffield will be expected to take one of the Sheffield projects. This is non-binding so you can change institution at any point up to about a month into the course, but overseas students should note that they will be required to pay an extra fee to modify their visa if they wish to change the University at which they take their research project.
