At doctoral level, the Faculty offers traditional UK style PhD supervision in all three of its Divisions; Biomedical and Life Sciences, Health Research and Medicine as well as unique opportunities to complete a PhD via distance e-learning coursework, research and thesis.
Study for a traditional PhD (by research and thesis) or MPhil qualification requires the production of a written thesis describing an original piece of scientific research. To achieve PhD standard, the work must represent an original contribution to knowledge and the completed thesis must contain material of a standard appropriate for scholarly publication. For MPhil, the thesis must demonstrate evidence of originality, at least in the exercise of an independent critical faculty, and shall achieve a high standard of competence in argument and presentation.
The Faculty welcomes applications from anyone seeking to do MPhil or PhD research degrees in any of our research areas.
