Course summary

Overview

Our research ranges across the biological sciences, from the understanding of precisely how neurons grow, to the mechanisms of cancer and other diseases, the molecular basis of animal and plant development and exploring the genetics of orang-utans, elephants, pandas and other endangered species. Research is led by internationally renowned researchers running dynamic research programmes, with access to a range of state-of-the-art technology facilities. Our reputation is reflected in the tens of millions of pounds in research funding that we attract annually and by our consistent high level of publications in top international journals. We encourage high-level interdisciplinary collaborations, both nationally and internationally.

Course structure

PhD - Students will train in internationally renowned laboratories under full supervision to complete a high-level research project. Our excellent seminar, skills and training programme at Cardiff University provides a fully tailored and vibrant research culture to ensure your professional development and employability. MD - The School offers laboratory-based research degrees to recognised graduates of Medicine that focus on a specific clinical research topic to make an original contribution to medical knowledge. As an MD student, you will receive a high level of supervision and access to specialist research skills training. MPhil - MPhil research offers a shorter and more focused project than studying for a PhD. An MPhil degree offers students an opportunity to build on previous academic and professional experience to develop research skills. MPhil students are actively involved in work at the cutting edge of all research activities.
