You may apply for more than one project, but you must submit only one application form, and include the titles of all the projects for which you are applying. If more than one application form is received, only one of them will be considered.

You must include the following in your application:

References must be from professional or academic contacts and cannot be from family members or friends. At least one reference should be from someone who knows you from your most recent academic qualification (but is not a member of the supervisory team for the project).
