Applicants will be expected to have an honours degree (first or upper second class or equivalent) in any biological subject. We will consider applicants with backgrounds in Chemistry, Computer Science, Electronics, Environment, Mathematics, Medicine or Physics who can demonstrate a commitment to the biosciences. If you're a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to.
Research areas: Biochemistry and biophysics; bioinformatics and biosystems modelling; developmental biology; ecology and evolution; infection and immunity; molecular and cellular medicine; molecular microbiology; plant biology.
An MPhil thesis is expected to display a good general knowledge of the field of study; a comprehensive knowledge of some part or aspect of the field of study; and a recognisable original contribution to knowledge or understanding. The thesis is judged by two examiners and the student is required to attend an oral examination on the subject of the thesis and on related research. The oral examination is vital for the award of the degree.
