Frequently Asked Questions

4-year PhD
Developmental and Stem Cell Biology

Do I need a separate application for the funding?
Only one application is needed for this programme (unless you are applying for a UCL Overseas Research Scholarship which requires an additional application form to be completed). Complete the College online application and under the section for Funding state which studentship(s) you wish to be considered for and note that the decision is pending.

Who are the best people to act as referees?
We require two references. For most applicants, this would be a programme or personal tutor or a project supervisor from your undergraduate or masters degree. If you have been working, your line manager would be appropriate for one of the references, along with an academic reference.

Should I express a preference for a particular project in my personal statement?
Your personal statement should reflect your research interests and so highlighting a preference for one or more of the projects listed can be used to strengthen your personal statement. This will not be binding if you are awarded a place as the programme starts with presentations from the supervisors and it is at this point that you will make your decision on which three labs to select for your rotations. 

Should I contact prospective supervisors before making an application?
No, this is not necessary as the successful candidates meet all the supervisors at the start of the programme.

Do I need to upload a research proposal with my application?
No, this is not necessary for this programme.
