Graduate Admissions

The Metabolic Research Laboratories  (MRL) considers applications for a 1-year MPhil by research from both basic scientists and clinical trainees.

Students undertake a specific research project, typically of 12 months duration, under the supervision of a principal investigator at MRI and submit a dissertation which is examined for the MPhil in Medical Sciences. 

Before making a formal application, applicants should contact individual Investigators whose work interests them to discuss potential projects and availability of funding.

Students receive training in scientific laboratory skills and methods appropriate to the project. Graduate students  also attend regular weekly seminars given by local, national and international speakers, and are encouraged to attend appropriate training courses provided by the University Graduate School of Life Sciences. They have opportunities to present their work at group meetings and seminars within the Metabolic Research Laboratories as well as at conferences and symposia. 

There is an energetic student community at the MRL that organises regular events such as a student journal club and an annual student symposium. 


Continuing

Transfer from MPhil to PhD is possible although it is not automatic. All cases are judged on their own merits based on a number of factors including: evidence of progress and research potential; a sound research proposal; the availability of a suitable supervisor, full funding and resources required for the research; acceptance by the Head of Department and the Degree Committee.
