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 and they 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

Although students are recruited into three- or four-year programmes they must pass an assessment at the end of their first year to progress to subsequent years.
