You are strongly encouraged to use the template form below for your research proposal.
At the application stage you are unlikely to be in a position to provide a comprehensive research proposal, and indeed the detailed shaping up of a research plan would be very much done in conjunction with your supervisors(s).
But it is important for us to appreciate what you are hoping to investigate, how you envisage carrying out the research, and what the results might be expected to contribute to current knowledge and understanding in the relevant academic field(s) of study.
This research proposal should then be submitted online as part of your application.
