Short-listed applicants will be interviewed by phone in April/May 2014.

The successful candidate will have to commit to take at least two modules a year (September to December and late January to May) for three years and to undertake a dissertation in the fourth year. If the successful candidate does not have a previous degree from an English-speaking university, they will have to prove competence in English (please see http://www.uhi.ac.uk/en/studying-at-uhi/international/how-to-apply-to-uhi/english-language-requirements ).
