Biochemistry

As a school, we believe that part of our mission is to train the next generation of life scientists. We take great pride in the standard of our postgraduate provision and offer both three- and four-year PhD programmes. It is also possible to pursue a MD degree, or a one-year MSc by Research degree. Competition for places on our postgraduate programmes is high, but we believe that we offer a unique and nurturing environment for talented students. You will receive extensive research training covering methodology, critical interpretation and problem-solving, as well as transferable skills training in communication, presentation, teamwork, time management and teaching. Training is also available in enterprise and entrepreneurship. You will have access to the world-class Wolfson Bioimaging Facility that provides a suite of state-of-the-art light and electron microscopes. In addition, the Proteomics Facility offers bespoke proteomics services for researchers.

Entry requirements

A minimum of an upper second-class honours degree (or international equivalent) in a relevant subject is required for entry to the PhD programme. Applicants who have completed their degree in certain countries will require an MSc to enable them to enter our PhD programme. We may consider MSc by research applications from candidates with a lower second-class degree (or international equivalent). Applicants for the MD should be medically qualified and should consult with the graduate director before applying.

See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.
