Ph.D by Research

We place a very high value on enabling people to obtain a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) Degree by Research. This means that you will work in a research group for 3 - 4 years on average performing high value and fundamental research in either pure science or applied science and engineering. You will be working under the supervision of an expert Academic Supervisor and also be learning practical research and health policy skills from other senior members of the research group. At first year (first and second semester) you will have 20 theoretical credits such as: Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Research methodology, medical ethics, health policy and etc…. then you will start your PhD thesis phase. In addition to your time spent doing research project work, you will also engage with the scientific literature and will also participate in research group discussions, meetings and external conferences. Finally, you will spend last course to writing up your research into your final PhD Thesis - this part can be an education in itself. Once the thesis has been written up you will be examined in a PhD Viva where an external academic will examine your work and you will also have the valued support of an internal examiner from your own department.
