MBPhD Programme - Guidance on Regulations
During the approved PhD period of study (typically submission at 2 years 8 months) the student will be governed by the the UCL Research Degree Regulations. Upon their return to MBBS Year 5 (Life Cycle) they are governed by the regulations for MBBS degrees.
MBPhD students will not be permitted to return to the MBBS programme before submitting a thesis for the PhD examination and will not be permitted to take the final examination for the MBBS degrees before being examined for the PhD examination.
A return to the MBBS programme will be determined by an academic review at 24 months of PhD registration (see Academic Review & Monitoring Regulations).
If a student is unable to submit their thesis by the end of their approved period of registration (2 years + 8 months) they may register as Completing Research Student Status (CRS) for 12 months while they write up their theses. CRS status means that you do not pay fees but have access to UCL facilities and can have one draft of your thesis read by your Supervisor (Graduate Research Degrees - Code of Practice). Transfer to CRS status is only permitted with the approval of the students supervisor and the Faculty Tutor and the student must have successfully upgraded from MPhil to PhD. In order to register as CRS, students' must apply for an Interruption of Study and defer their return to the clinical course for one year until the following session. During this 12 month interruption period the student will be expected to attend additional clinical sessions. Please note that in some instances students have been required to re-take MBBS Year 4 (Integrated Clinical Care).
If the student anticipates applying for an Interruption Study they must in the first instance arrange to meet with the Faculty Tutor via the Medical School Welfare Clinic, and the Programme Tutor, Prof Gordon Stewart, as both applications require their support.
Please note there is no central funding provision for extensions of a students PhD beyond the approved period of study and it the responsibility of Supervisors to source additional funding for any extended research period.
