Graduate Admissions

Three years of supervised laboratory-based research (five years part-time) examined by thesis and viva voce. PhD students are typically science graduates, medical students combining clinical training with the PhD, and clinically qualified doctors undertaking scientific training.

Research is in the areas of clinical transplantation, transplant immunology, orthopaedic research, regenerative medicine, urology and vascular research and covers basic biology through to clinical therapies. Specific research training relevant to your own project is provided in the laboratory in which you work. Further training is provided within the Biomedical Campus and elsewhere in the University and includes graduate workshops on research techniques, research seminars, and graduate student education seminars on generic subjects such as intellectual property rights, statistics, bioinformatics, communication skills, writing a thesis or paper, entrepreneurship, etc.

Candidates wishing to take a shorter course of research may apply for the MPhil in Medical Sciences, which is also examined by thesis and is not a taught course.


Continuing

Graduate students registered on the MPhil course and intending to continue to a PhD will need to demonstrate an appropriate degree of progress and understanding of their research area by completing a written report and a viva, and will need to have secured funding for further study.
