We provide opportunities to pursue research studies leading to the degrees of MPhil and PhD. There are four broad research themes, within which each academic member of staff undertakes research. All academic members of staff have an excellent track record in research and are well equipped with the relevant expertise and resources to train research students and provide an outstanding study environment.

We welcome students from a wide variety of scientific backgrounds, including Biochemistry, Biology, Biosciences, Genetics, Medicine, Molecular Biology, Neuroscience, Optometry, Physics, Psychology, Zoology, etc. Working within a multidisciplinary research team ensures that our postgraduate students acquire skills necessary for a career as a world-class independent researcher.

Funding for postgraduate research students is obtained from many different sources, depending on the student and the project.
