Course summary

The Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience (PDN) offers excellent opportunities and facilities for training in research, leading to the MPhil (Master of Philosophy) degree. Our one-year full-time (two years part-time) MPhil research programme leads to the MPhil in Veterinary Science degree. Students also attend relevant lectures and seminars and participate in skills development training activities organised by the department and the Postgraduate School of Life Sciences. The main aims of the course are: to give students with relevant experience at the first-degree level the opportunity to carry out focussed research in the discipline under close supervision; and to give students the opportunity to acquire or develop skills and expertise relevant to their research interests. Students usually start their project in October and submit a thesis of not more than 20,000 words by the end of August. We also accept students to start in January and April. Full information on potential supervisors and research projects can be found on the Postgraduate Education page on the department website. Candidates are required to contact potential supervisors in advance of applying. General enquiries concerning postgraduate opportunities within the Department of PDN can also be directed to [email protected]. Initial enquiries should be made as early as possible.
