All students wishing to join the Molecular Cell Biology PhD Programme must apply via UCL's application portal. Applications for the September 2024 intake will be accepted until April 1, 2024.
Students should indicate that they are able to self-fund in their UCL application. You can also look for funding opportunities using the UCL Scholarships Finder
We are looking for candidates with a keen interest in cell biology, coupled with an undergraduate degree in a relevant field (for example Life Sciences, Physics, Maths or Computer Science) at a minimum of upper second-class UK Bachelor’s level or overseas equivalent.
Selection, offers and acceptance
Interviews will be held online.
If we make you an offer, we will would like you to decide whether you wish to accept within a reasonable period of time.
If you accept our offer, you will be making a binding commitment to our Programme, and we will ask you to withdraw your applications for other PhD places.
We will consider any UK graduate with a minimum 2:1 BSc degree in Biosciences. We will also consider degrees with interdisciplinary backgrounds where graduates can demonstrate an interest in cell biology. Degree qualifications of equivalent standard (i.e. would qualify for starting a PhD thesis in your home country) obtained in other countries are recognised.
