Career opportunities

Our doctoral students progress beyond their PhDs into a variety of positions and areas. They benefit from our commitment to developing wider skills and experience, and the breadth and quality of research they are engaged with. This, along with the strength of the final PhD projects, ensures they are in high demand.

73% of our Wellcome Trust 4-year PhD funded students who have completed their studies have gone on to postdoctoral research work.

The remainder undertake science-related employment, such as medical writing, science education, science funding, and clinical science. Our programme uniquely offers the opportunity to experience careers in policy, public engagement, the NHS and industry.

Career paths may include:

  • clinical training;
  • industrial research;
  • health services consultancy and policy;
  • teaching;
  • science writing.
