UCL Division of Medicine


Postgraduate Research Degrees


The Division offers research opportunities in a variety of subjects within the field of Medicine. There are over 190 current research students on MD(Res) and MPhil/PhD programmes and most of our students undertake their studies on one of our three Campuses (Royal Free, Whittington or Bloomsbury) under the supervision of UCL academics who are experts in their fields. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds with the majority having secured funds for their studies via competitive selection or peer reviewed grant.

The Division aims to educate, train, and inspire the next generation of scientists and doctors and to be at the forefront of biomedical research. In 09/10 the Division had a submission rate of 81% and we hope to continue this trend by attracting high calibre applicants.

If you are interested in joining us as a research student we recommend that you first take a look at our Research Areas pages to identify areas of interest to you. You should then contact an academic who shares the same research interest to discuss your proposed project. It is important for students to be matched in the best way possible with their proposed supervisor so we strongly recommend that you come to an agreement of supervision before submitting an application.
