PhD and MPhil programmes in Biological Sciences are offered by the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health. As one of the largest and most successful research and teaching organisations of its kind in Europe, the Faculty operates a scientific culture in which there are no traditional barriers between research disciplines. Shared expertise and the development of new technologies enable important biological problems to be approached using novel and innovative methods.
Postgraduate opportunities span all fields of biology, from the molecule to the cell, through to the whole organism. Projects are offered from a range of exciting and challenging research themes. Three or four-year PhD programmes and one-year MPhil programmes are tailored to suit students with different levels of research experience, and students are carefully matched with a supervisor of their choice.
The Faculty is proud of the training opportunities it provides for all graduate students during their studies. No matter what subject area, our researcher development opportunities provide a variety of research and transferable skills, which will be of benefit for the various career paths that biological sciences graduates embark on. All postgraduate research students attend our popular Doctoral Academy Training Programme delivered by the Centre for Academic and Researcher Development (CARD).
