Course summary

This is a research-based course. Students receive training in scientific laboratory skills and methods appropriate to the PhD project. Postgraduate students at the Metabolic Research Laboratories are expected to attend regular weekly Hot Topics and Technical sessions, seminars by local, national and international speakers, and are encouraged to attend appropriate training courses provided by the University Graduate School of Life Sciences to widen their experience further.

Our students have opportunities to present their work at group meetings and seminars within the Metabolic Research Laboratories as well as at conferences and symposia. Students also organise a student symposium each year, which gives valuable experience in all aspects of organising a scientific meeting, including managing budgets, arranging catering, scheduling the day and marketing the event.

Assessment

Thesis

The student is expected to submit a thesis, of fewer than 60,000 words, within four years of starting study. Post-submission, the student will be examined orally by two examiners on the content of the thesis and on the wider research area.

Other

Every student is 'probationary' in their first year and expected to submit a first-year report within nine months of commencing study. The student is examined orally on the content of this report and on their understanding of the wider research field and future research plans. Subject to a satisfactory outcome, the student is then fully registered for PhD study.

By the end of the programme, candidates will have acquired excellent skills, experience and knowledge to undertake postdoctoral work (research and teaching) or another related profession.
