Our institutes and divisions have excellent discipline-specific specialised facilities to support your study . In addition there are teams of specialised technicians and administrators who will support your teaching and learning.

The Institute of Ophthalmology is located next to Moorfields Eye Hospital; the Ear Institute is located next to the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital; the Institute of Neurology is situated opposite the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

Many of the staff involved in our educational programmes hold joint posts with these hospitals and the Faculty of Brain Sciences, providing strong clinical links for our programmes.

We have a number of 3- and 4-year funded PhD programmes that are funded by UK Research Councils and Biomedical Research Charities, e.g. the MRC, US National Institute of Health (NIH), the BBSRC, the ESRC, the Wellcome Trust, and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
