Postgraduate students are directly involved in the mainstream research of the division. Postgraduates receive specialised laboratory/field training and in addition are encouraged to take part in a range of courses organised by the University, such as teaching skills, statistical methods, computing and languages. They are encouraged to attend and present lectures and posters at major scientific conferences both within the UK and overseas. Recently students have attended conferences in the USA and Australia as well as various European countries.
Applicants should hold at least an upper second class honours degree, or its equivalent, in an appropriate subject.
If you are an Overseas Applicant, the deadline for submitting your application to study on our postgraduate programmes commencing in October 2013 in the Faculty of Health and Medicine, is Thursday 15 August 2013, as from this date there will be insufficient time remaining before the start of the programme for us to be able to make a decision in time for you to apply for and obtain a Visa.
Applications from overseas candidates for study on postgraduate programmes with later or flexible start dates will continue to be accepted.
