Q1. Does the Department of Pathology offer taught courses?

No, the Department only offers research courses.

Q2. Does the Department offer professional medical education?

No, the Department only offers research courses.

Q3. Which degrees does the Department offer and how do they differ?

The Department offers the one-year MPhil, the two-year MSc and the three-year PhD. These are all research degrees and are not taught courses. Most of the applications received are for the MPhil or PhD degrees since most research studentship grants are for one or three years duration. However, some supervisors will consider taking an MSc student and it is also possible to upgrade an MSc to a PhD under certain circumstances.

Q4. What about financial support?

All postgraduate degrees require financial support for the duration of the studentship. Like most British Universities, the Department of Pathology has a small number of funded studentships available, but most of those are restricted to UK applicants. In most cases, applicants from overseas must obtain financial support from elsewhere. The Graduate Studies Prospectus contains details on potential sources of financial support, and any prospective supervisor would, of course, discuss this matter with you. Some students finance their research degree from private sources, but this is very expensive. 

Q5. How do I apply?

Apply online using the Applicant Portal or apply on paper.
