Academic Registry

Admissions & RSR

Application forms and other required documents to support the application can be found on the How to Apply pages. As part of our application process all candidates for PGRS are required to be interviewed.

To ensure compliance with the University of Portsmouth all staff involved with the selection and admission of a PGRS should undertake the Graduate School's Research Supervision Event - Best Practice in the Selection and Admission of PGR Students and see the supporting guidance document.  

Please use the application evaluation and interview checklist form found below.

Once a decision to offer a place has been made, the RSR form must be completed, signed by all supervisors and approved by the Chair, FRD Committee BEFORE any offer letter is sent to the applicant. Please see the latest RSR form (below) which should be used along with a guidance document, if required.
