How to apply (Ph.D.)

The Ph.D. in Theology is a very competitive programme with few spaces.

We welcome applications from highly qualified candidates with undergraduate and Masters-level experience (minimum GPA 3.6, UK average 66, or Scotland average 16) in theology and/or a closely related subject.

Prospective applicants are strongly advised to contact a potential supervisor before making an application.

All applications are submitted online. Please see the School of Divinity’s Postgraduate Research Degrees page and the university’s postgraduate admissions pages for details.

Please note: Applications are only considered complete when all necessary documentation, including references, has been received. After you submit your applications, referees have forty days to submit their references, and your application will not be processed until these have been submitted. If you need your referees to act more quickly than within the standard time frame, it is your responsibility to ask them to do so.
