Postgraduate Research

The Cancer Institute, draws together research teams at UCL which focus on Cancer Biology and Translational Research, Experimental Cancer Therapeutics, and Clinical Cancer Studies. The Institute is a cross-disciplinary entity with over 150 PhD students researching aspects of cancer, oncology, pathology and haematology. You can apply at any time and we accept sudents at three points during the year. Your first step is to find a supervisor and funding. We have over 130 excellent supervisors and you can find information about potential supervisors (publications, projects, and other research activities) in the research sections of our department pages. Please get their agreement to supervise you before putting their name on your application. You can find their email address in the UCL staff directory. You are welcome to approach the research team supervisors directly if you have a funding source or idea, alternatively new scholarships appear below regularly throughout the year.

If you need some guidance please contact us on ci.pgreducation@ucl.ac.uk
