Explore our fully-funded and self-funded PhD research projects

If you want to do a PhD, MPhil or MD with us and you don't have your own research idea, you can apply to one of our pre-approved PhD research projects.

Once you've found a project you're interested in, you should contact one of the supervisors on the project to discuss your interest – you'll find the supervisor's contact details on the individual project page.

If you've got your own research idea and you've identified a subject area that fits your research, find a supervisor in our Research Portal and contact them directly to discuss your idea.
