It is very important that you submit your Research Proposal to the Department prior to making a formal application for admission into the PhD programme. Once you have drafted a research proposal (see the Guidelines below), please browse through the staff information on our departmental webpage (http://www.english.cityu.edu.hk) to identify one or two academic staff members whose research areas and interests represent a close match to yours. You should then send your proposal to the staff member and ask if they would be available to supervise you. Once you have gained support for your proposal from a member of staff you then proceed to the university online application web page at http://www.cityu.edu.hk/sgs/download/rpg/prospective/handbook.pdf
You may contact the PhD Admissions tutor, Dr Lindsay Miller (email: firstname.lastname@example.org), for any other enquiries.
You must have a serious question in mind worthy of careful, thorough research. That is, you must be able to state a proposition (or a series of related propositions) worthy of detailed research and analysis.
The proposal should be written in English and include:
The proposal should be around ten single-spaced pages including references.
