Programme description

PhD programmes are based on individual research projects that last 3 or 4 years, working with a specific academic supervisor (principle investigators). Applicants are specifically matched with a principle investigator based on their research interests and background.

Physiology seeks to addresses how the individual aspects of molecular, cellular, tissue and organ function relates to whole organism function and how perturbations from the external environment effect these processes. Research utilises emerging technologies in parallel with more traditional studies at whole organism level. This approach benefits from the sense of perspective gained from the application of a wide range of techniques to understanding physiological systems. Examples of current physiological research include:

  • Cardiovascular & Muscle Responses to Injury
  • Male & Female Infertility
  • Diabetes Mellitus & Secretory Processes
  • Body Fluid Homeostasis

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2014, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • PhD (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): Low £6,800, Medium £13,450, High £18,450
    International students (per annum): Standard £18,000, Low £20,100, Medium £25,100, High £30,300
  • PhD (part-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): Low £3,350, Medium £6,500, High £9,050
    International students (per annum): Standard £9,000, Low £10,050, Medium £12,550, High £15,150

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees. Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
