Application and Contact
Students who are interested in pursuing a PhD at UCL should contact Prof. Stephen Colvin (Director of the PhD programme) for information and advice. First take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions:
PhD students must normally have completed an MA, either at UCL or elsewhere. The core programme of research and supervision for full-time students runs for three years; after the third year the student is granted an additional fourth year to complete the writing-up of the thesis. Fees are not payable for this fourth year.
