Finding a supervisor

One of the most common questions that I’m asked is “how do I find a supervisor? I’ve sent email but not had any replies.” The best thing you can do is to talk to your current professors. And I mean talk to them, don’t email, drop by their office and chat. Tell them what you want to do, who you think you want to work with, and ask them for advice. You can also ask them if they can help you to get in contact with a supervisor.


Direct entry to PhD

MiNDS accepts direct entry to the PhD program from students who have a strong research and academic background.

The interest in joining the MiNDS program to do a PhD is very strong. Students love the flexible, research focused program and the large number of outstanding supervisors.

We are very happy to get applications from students who are looking for a supportive, collaborative, interdisciplinary neuroscience program for their PhD studies.

Review of applications continues

We are busy with the process of reviewing applications to the MiNDS program.

Once again there have been many outstanding applications for graduate studies in the MiNDS program from students interested in both MSc and PhD studies.

It takes a couple of weeks to complete the initial review of the applications and then the applications are made available for supervisors to look for a student.

If you have been in touch with a supervisor be sure to follow-up with them and ask if they have had an opportunity to look at your application material.
