Pre-approved PhD research projects

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, 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.
