Course summary

A research degree is a very individual experience, more so than an undergraduate degree. While the overarching structure will be identical or similar across the university, individual research projects, research interactions and assessment interactions will differ. This environment can provide a rich learning experience for student cohorts discussing their experiences.

A research degree has an exciting scope for collaborations and working as a team and as such, learning or enhancing your communication and people management skills. It is highly creative and can be more unpredictable than an undergraduate degree. A research degree is not simply about collecting results or data but also querying these and discussing them with others. Learning is continuous and poor experimental results can form part of research learning and success. Unlike a typical classroom experience of an undergraduate degree, a research degree will empower you to drive your own learning experience and expand your knowledge in a variety of ways.

The NHLI welcomes outstanding students from around the world onto its basic and clinical science PhD and MD(Res) programmes. Within the NHLI, succesful applicants will have the opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research in a highly supportive and motivating environment, as well as have access to an outstanding and award winning network of supervisors, mentors and experienced postgraduate tutors.
