We have a thriving international Researcher community and encourage applications from students of any nationality able to fund their own studies (i.e. through Government scholarship schemes), or who wish to apply for their own funding (e.g. Commonwealth Scholarships, Islamic Development Bank International PhD Scholarships, China Scholarship Council).
At present, we would only consider applications from prospective students with:
- a good biomedical degree (minimum of a 2:1)
- a source of funding to cover tuition fees and bench fees.
