Candidates are encouraged to study the research interests and published track record of potential supervisors. Once an enquiry has been received, it will be circulated amongst potential supervisors, and a response will be forthcoming as soon as a decision is made. In certain circumstances it will be necessary to request further information, or invitations to visit the department will be made.

It should be noted that independent of funding, the ability to extend an offer of supervision is contingent on the availability of a supervisor to support a given area of Ph.D. studies. Occasionally this may result in qualified candidates being turned down for lack of resources.
