Applying for a Research Degree - RGU Staff
Information for Staff Members on applying for an MSc/MRes/PhD Application
The paper below highlights the currently approved University procedure for staff wishing to undertake a research degree. For the fee waiver scheme to apply, staff must prepare an expression of interest which must be approved at School/Departmental level before the member of staff can complete the research degree application via the Apply Yourself Online System.
Members of staff wishing to undertake a research degree which has not been approved as part of a School/Department strategic plan should just complete the research degree application via the Apply Yourself Online System but should note that the fee waiver scheme will not apply in this case.
