Course summary

MPhil/PhD Biomedical Sciences

Study for an MPhil, ResM, or PhD degree with the School of Biomedical Sciences and join a dynamic research community of students, academics and staff that are doing their bit to tackle some of the greatest problems impacting science and society.

This full time or part time doctoral programme is suitable for people who have a particular research question or topic in mind, and wish to explore this through independent study in order to produce an original contribution to the subject. If you aspire to a research career this is the most appropriate research degree to undertake.

You will be guided by a small supervisory team of academic experts under the direction of a Director of Studies. Even if you already have a masters degree, you will be registered as a ‘MPhil/PhD’ candidate. Via the confirmation of route status no later than 15 months (21 months for part time students) into your programme, you can apply to transfer to the PhD route, based on your progress to date.

Overseas applicants must submit their application 4.5 months prior to the proposed programme start date. For Home/EU applicants the deadline is 2.5 months prior to the proposed programme start date. There are three possible start dates per year, 1 October, 1 January and 1 April.
