Apply for 2020

COVID-19 update

In response to COVID-19, our recuitment processes will be adapted to ensure the health and safety of our all applicants and staff. All applicants will be considered holistically on their own merit and in competition with the rest of the applicant cohort during that academic cycle.

Currently, we do not anticipate any date change for the recruitment workshop - Wednesday 6 May 2020. If successful, shortlisted candidates will be individually informed of the new format for the recruitment workshop by Wednesday 29 April. 

University of Bristol COVID-19 advice for student and applicants

Our first application deadline has passed, but we are still accepting applications for September 2020 entry.  Early application submission is strongly recommended as the programme will close once all available places are filled. Funded places after these dates will be subject to availability of studentships.

Application Deadline -  Monday 20 April  2020 23:59 GMT

Entry Requirements

Applicants must hold/achieve a minimum of an upper-second class honours degree (or international equivalent) in a relevant discipline including (but not limited to): computer science, psychology, management, electrical and electronics engineering, civil engineering, criminology and social sciences.

The most critical requirement is a passion for cyber security and the desire to make our connected world secure and hence safe.

Candidates should be willing to work across disciplinary boundaries and inform their research from different disciplinary perspectives.

English language requirements

Applicants whose first language is not English, and whose full undergraduate degree was not taught in an English-speaking country, must hold/achieve a minimum score in an approved English language test as specified in Profile B of the University's English Language Requirements Policy.
