Eligibility and Criteria
- IMPRS is looking for highly motivated PhD students who have a record of excellence in their previous studies. Most of their incoming students will have Masters or MPhys degrees as part of their entry qualification. Applications from candidates with excellent Bachelor degrees will also be considered for some projects involving St Andrews supervisors. If a student joins IMPRS-CPQM holding a Bachelor degree, they will do extra graduate courses to take them to the equivalent Masters level.
- If students are interested in the projects offered by IMPRS-CPQM and would like to join us to work in a stimulating research environment, they are welcome to apply for admission into research school. Gender balance is an important issue for us, and we particularly welcome applications from female candidates.
