Many of our self-funded doctoral students come to Worcester with their own project ideas. However, our Research Groups and Centres have put together some ideas for potential PhD projects that they would be interested to supervise around their particular areas of expertise.
If you are interested in one of these projects, please contact the lead supervisor to have a chat about your interests and the project idea. If you then wish to the apply for this particular project, please go to our Course Search and select the relevant research degree programme area.
An application link can then be found towards the bottom of each programme page. In your application, please remember to clearly highlight that you are applying for one of our un-funded MPhil/PhD project ideas so we can be sure to remove this from the website, should your application be successful.
