We're ranked UK number one for biomedical research and top five for biological research (REF 2014).

Some of the projects below come with specific funding (for example, from a research council or Centre for Doctoral Training) to cover your tuition fees and living expenses.

If a project does not come with specific funding, you may be able to apply for a scholarship. Once you have found a project you want to apply for, find out how to apply.

If you have your own idea for a project, you can find a potential supervisor by visiting our research pages. Contact a member of academic staff to find out about PhD opportunities in their area.
