How do I apply to the BMS?

Start by registering on the BMS website. Then follow the instructions on the Application Information page.

What is the difference between the 'first round' and the 'second round' application phase?

Most of our merit-based scholarships will be awarded to those applicants who apply by the first round deadline of 1 December. The purpose of the second round is to make it possible for late applications to be submitted by the final deadline of 1 March. Please note, however, that there will be only a limited number of scholarships remaining by that time.

Do I need to submit an APS certificate?

No. An APS certificate is not necessary for an application to the BMS PhD Program.
