What you need to know – applying for a PhD (references)

studentChoosing your referees is an important aspect of the PhD application process. Appropriate people to provide your references would include your undergraduate tutor, director of studies or course organiser.

If it is a while since you graduated, or if you are applying for certain types of professional programmes, you should name one academic referee and one work-related referee, such as your line manager.

What You Need to Know – applying for a PhD @ Edinburgh

Last year the Institute for Academic Development (IAD) held a panel discussion with University of Edinburgh representatives who are involved in the PhD application process.  What students said about the event:

“Got a good idea about applying for a PhD. Since the presenters were members of the selection committee, feedback given by them was more useful.”

“Most Useful Aspect: The panel of experts answered queries from a wide range of perspectives.”

In November this year, the IAD will hold panel discussions for Taught Masters students who are considering applying for a PhD at the University of Edinburgh.  At the event, students will have the opportunity to ask staff questions about the PhD application process at the University of Edinburgh; gain an insight into possible funding routes; and visa requirements. We will have representatives from Registry, Admissions, IAD, EUSA, International Office and the Scholarship Office.

There are three sessions (including an online session) – you can register for any of calendarthe sessions, however, we have tried to target the location with the specific cohort. Please Book by clicking on the booking link

Looking to the Future: Thinking About a PhD
