*What is an Eligibility Checklist?

  • Our eligibility checklist is a short series of steps that allows you to check if you meet the criteria to apply for the PhD project you are interested in. 
  • It will also suggest funding schemes that you may be able to apply for based on your answers.
  • Your answers are not recorded and completing an eligibility checklist does not commit you to making a PhD application via EUCLID.
