What is the difference between the 'first round' and the 'second round' application phase?
Most of our merit-based scholarships will be awarded to those applicants who apply by the first round deadline of 1 December. The purpose of the second round is to make it possible for late applications to be submitted by the final deadline for that academic year. Please note, however, that only a limited number of scholarships remain at that time.
The 1 December deadline is for Phase II applicants who will have completed their master’s degree before 31 March and want to start at the BMS earlier than October.
The 1 April deadline is for those Phase II applicants who will have completed their master’s degree by 30 September and want to start at the BMS in October.
Phase II applicants who want to be considered for funding, either in the form of a scholarship or a research position, should indicate that in the online application form.
Do I need to submit an APS certificate?
No. An APS certificate is not required by the BMS for an application to its doctoral program.
