    I have an MSc in a life science subject, and worked in industry for a while then decided I would like to pursue research so I applied for a PhD. The programme in question had no closing date, it has been just over a week but I haven't had an email to confirm receipt of the application. Is this normal?

    You can email to check that they've received the application but the application can take about 6-8 weeks to process.
