    I have no idea what "direct route" means. Do you mean without a masters?

    It's not the best idea to go direct route to PhD because you may be stuck to a project you cant stand.

    Oh, then most of them. All you need is an undergrad degree with an honours thesis, usually at least 2:1. A couple insist on 4 years of study before applying, but most are fine with 3.

    in the UK you can get into a 3.5 year PhD course with that degree.

    Cambridge and Imperial need 4 years, Oxford, Manchester, UCL, etc only need a 3 year degree
