Applications for 2023 entry will open in autumn 2022.
All applications must be made through our online portal. Applications by post or email will not be accepted.
You will need to register and verify your email address. Please check your Junk/Spam folder if you do not receive a verification email after registration.
During the application process, we will ask you to upload or provide the following:
- Transcripts for your previous degrees
- A statement of research interests and how they align with the Unit's research themes
- Names and contact details of at least two (ideally three) academic referees who have agreed to comment on your ability and suitability for doctoral research. Please submit this information as soon as possible, even before the rest of the application is complete. References must reach us one day after the deadline. It is your responsibility to follow up with your referees to ensure the references arrive on time.
Candidates offered a place on the Gatsby PhD programme will be required to meet UCL's standard admissions requirements (including the English language proficiency requirements for international applicants). For more information see FAQs.
Please do not apply via central UCL Admissions. All applications must be made to the Gatsby Unit via our online portal first.
