Please note that most of the forms below will be removed from April 2019 as they are now located within the PhD Manager system. All researchers submitting upgrade and fieldwork applications for 2018-19 should log in to PhD Manager and complete the online forms.

All forms must be submitted to the Doctoral School Section, Registry and may require written confirmation from Supervisors, Associate Director of Research and/or Financial Sponsors

  • CAS Application (PhD) (msword; 54kb) - to be submitted to apply for a standard Tier 4 visa extension
  • Applications for Extensions - It should be noted that it is important for PhD candidates to submit within the deadline. However, the School also recognizes the differing nature of individual research degrees and approved a procedure by which students may apply for a suspension of regulations to allow a short period of continued enrolment beyond the 48 month deadline (84 months for part-time). Applications must be made via the Suspension of Regulations Procedure and should be submitted by your first supervisor. You are advised to apply for an extension well in advance of your submission deadline.

If you require advice on the submission or completion of any form please contact the Doctoral School Section directly at doctoralschool@soas.ac.uk.
