Graduate Admissions

  • A PhD degree by research over a minimum of three and a maximum of four years, including a probationary period of one year.
  • Research subjects run the gamut from mathematical studies through small and macromolecules, cells, tissues and model organisms to clinical patients. Examination is by submission and viva voce examination of a thesis.  
  • Each student is assigned a primary supervisor who will then assign an advisor or supervisory team to assist the student under their supervision.
  • Training is available in transferable and specialist science skills. Transferable skills are taught under a credit system – students are required to take a minimum of ten days per year of this type of training.
  • Many research projects are carried out primarily within the Department, but part of your studies may occur elsewhere or even abroad.
  • Depending on the funder, some courses include lab rotation in the first year.

Continuing

Continuation to the PhD  from MPhil 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; and acceptance by the Head of Department and the Degree Committee.
