To be a DPhil candidate at the Smith School, an application must be made to the DPhil in Geography and the Environment, through the School of Geography and the Environment. Successful applicants become a DPhil candidate at the Smith School if they are supervised by a member of the Smith School's faculty.

The Department encourages applicants to make contact with a potential supervisor to discuss a research proposal before submitting an application to the DPhil. The application should then indicate the name of that potential supervisor so that it can be passed to the Smith School for comment.

If an application is received which does not mention a potential supervisor, but the research proposal is within the remit of the Smith School, the application will be passed to the Smith School for comment.
