Graduate Admissions

Teaching

The course is exclusively by research. The project and supervisor are determined during the application process.  

 

One to one supervision

We would estimate on average that the lead supervisor would provide up to one hour per week of direct supervision with additional supervision provided within the research group as designated by the lead supervisor. There may also be the opportunity to attend regular lab meetings with the supervisor and other research group members.

The University of Cambridge publishes an annual Code of Practice which sets out the University’s expectations regarding supervision.

Posters

First- and third-year students are required to present a talk at the annual Departmental graduate symposium.

Feedback

Students can expect to receive an online feedback report each term
