The primary aim is for our postgraduate students to develop the skills required to submit an excellent PhD thesis in either three or four years full-time, depending upon the duration of their funding. Our students design and conduct robust and high quality experiments, analyse the results of these experiments, and learn to communicate those findings both in writing and orally. Students also implement sophisticated analyses of existing ‘big data’ sets from large cohort studies. We also aim for our students to be fluent and practiced in open science principles and methodologies. While there is no "standard" route or model for an excellent PhD, our experience is that it always results from the combined expertise of our supervisors and the dedicated enthusiasm of our doctoral students. Beyond research, we endeavour to equip students for rewarding and successful careers in their chosen profession, whether this is in academia, industry, policy, or clinical practice.
Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK Good II.i Honours Degree.
