The call for applications for industrial doctorates is aimed at future doctoral students, that is, there is no need to certify admission on a doctoral programme to apply for an industrial doctorate project.

However, candidates will need to certify admission on the doctoral programme should they be selected to undertake an industrial doctorate project and become part of a formal funding application.

For further information on doctoral programme admission requirements, contact the university offering the doctoral programme, which appears on the form, directly.

Furthermore, candidates should provide proof that they have received an average mark of 6.5 or above (marked out of 10), calculated on the total number of credits of the university courses that give access to doctoral studies.

For more information on the system used to calculate the average mark, contact the Agency for Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR).
