I do not have space or resources for hosting interns, so please do not ask.

If you want to apply to do a PhD with me at UCL:

If I am currently hiring for a particular position, it will appear on my homepage, not here. General unsolicited applicants, please read on.

Are you a British resident OR an EU/Swiss national who has been living in the UK for 3 years? The residency requirements for 'EU Nationals in the UK' are spelled out here.
If you also have excellent academic qualifications, then you are in the best situation, in that pools of such funding seem to form every year. Put the word britapp in your subject.

To get funding for students from other countries (including the EU) requires a proven track record. Essentially, you must have done some research of publishable quality already, before or during your MS degree. I list just a few links below, and apologize in advance if I don't respond to your request for a letter of support: I get so much unsolicited mail of this type that I frequently can not give an application the time and attention it deserves. It will help if you put the word phdapp in the subject. Please look here for the normal admissions procedure for UCL. Note that we have a separate (and excellent) MS program that is worth completing before launching into a PhD. If you are interested in research, try to be persistent - this is a hugely rewarding career!
