The Department has a thriving postgraduate programme. It recruits 15-20 PhD students per annum from a variety of sources including Research Councils, Charity, UCL schemes and a number of inter-disciplinary centres across UCL. There are more than 100 postgraduate students working in the department for MSc, MRes and PhD research degrees. The Department is closely associated with a number of Doctoral Training Centres: CoMPLEX (Centre for Mathematics and Physics in the Life Sciences and Experimental Biology), LIDo (BBSRC London Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme) and the London NERC Doctoral Training Programme:
Details of how to apply, funding and scholarships are found within the individual programme links below, and through the main Biosciences homepage.
Taught Masters (MSc)
The Department runs and contributes to full-time Taught Masters courses run over 12 months leading to an MSc. The Taught Masters Programme allows students to gather further specialised training before embarking on a career in research or elsewhere.
Research-intensive MRes programmes are offered in a number of areas. The Department also supports students who want to work with individual members of staff through the MRes Biosciences.
PhD Studentships are offered by individual PIs from a number of different sources. Current opportunities are listed here. Potential applicants are advised to get in touch with individual members of academic staff they might wish to work with.
In addition, the Department is closely associated with a number of Doctoral Training Centres that recruit large cohorts of students annually. Entry to these programmes offers training as well as the opportunity for student choice of supervisory teams. Potential applicants are advised to visit the web sites for these programmes, and to apply well in advance of the deadlines. This include CoMPLEX (Centre for Mathematics and Physics in the Life Sciences and Experimental Biology), LIDo (BBSRC London Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme) and the London NERC Doctoral Training Programme.
