PhD projects

Funded projects

We advertise fully-funded PhD opportunities on our website and on the FindaPhD website.

These are funded for example by charities, the Medical School, industry or UKRI, and will be with a named supervisor and on a specified project.

Please check eligibility carefully; many will only be open to UK (Home) students.

Due to the variable nature of funding, these can be offered at different times of the year, and have different application deadlines.

Self-funded projects

If you would like to propose your own research project, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Supervisors will be happy to work with you to devise a project that can encompass your own research interest whilst still supporting the strategic research priorities of their own research group/centre and that of the Medical School.

Prior to submitting an application, please contact a potential supervisor directly to discuss possible supervision of a self-funded project leading to one of our postgraduate research degrees, including MSc by thesis.
