There is a range of support you can access to help you submit a high quality research proposal.

Your supervisory team will provide you with support to prepare your proposal. The Graduate Education Officers also offer support with the provision of advice about the aim, format and submission of proposals and how they are assessed.

Guidelines and advice

Your research proposal should be written in plain English for a generalist reader. In 15 pages or less, you will address sections A to F of the guidelines.

These guidelines are also available in HTML and RTF formats.

Submission and approval

Once completed, you will submit your Research Proposal for approval by a member of the Board of the Graduate Research School.
