Programme structure

Our PhD training offers a four year training programme where students will undertake a research project, a mixture of taught courses drawn from existing Masters level courses and a main PhD project (Entry to a three year studentship is possible for those who already have relevant Masters level training or equivalent). Training is affiliated with the UCL EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training In Medical Imaging.

Eligibility

Applications are invited from candidates who have achieved, or are predicted, a first class or upper second class honours undergraduate degree (or equivalent international qualifications or experience) who can demonstrate an interest in healthcare engineering for surgical and interventional sciences. Our preferred subject areas are Physical Sciences (Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Physics). Applicants with degrees in Chemistry or Life Sciences must demonstrate strong mathematical skills.

Funding

Studentships available cover the cost of fees for UK/EU students and a stipend of £16,851 (tax free).

Due to funding restrictions, we can only accept students from outside the EU if they are in possession of a fully funded scholarship or have their own funding. Further information on eligibility and funding.
