The School of Life Sciences has a large and diverse community of international students and staff.
Each year we welcome around 90 international students on undergraduate and exchange programmes from the Americas, the Middle East, South East Asia, Africa, China and Australia.
We also offer opportunities for UK based students to study abroad as part of our BSc Tropical Biology and MSci Neuroscince courses, as well as field trips on other courses such as zoology and biology.
Our sister school based at our Malaysia campus has opportunities for students to study for a degree in Biomedical Sciences.
Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action currently offers the following funded opportunities for research students to study abroad:
This is a new Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (ITN) based at Centres of Excellence in Lisbon, Helsinki, Paris, Wageningen, Abingdon and Nottingham. Our industrial partner in the UK is Green Biologics. For further details visit the CLOSPORE website.
This Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (ITN) is looking to recruit 15 early stage researchers to work with leading research scientists in labs across Europe with an interest in G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). For further details visit the ONCORNET website.
Each year we welcome a number of Brazilian undergraduates to the school as part of the Brazilian Government Scholarship Programme for a 'study abroad year'. In this year they will experience taught modules, lectures, as well as an advanced research project supervised by an academic. In 2014 students research included:
Our Science without Borders students presented their research to staff and students in the school during our SWB talks day in summer 2015. Learn more about our past and present students.
Each year we welcome a number of Brazilian undergraduates to the school as part of the Brazilian Government Scholarship Programme which aims to send 100,000 Brazilian students abroad to study creative industries, engineering, mathematics, science and technology at universities across the world.
We welcome applications from students who would like to study for a postgraduate degree in our school. For further details visit our SWB webpage.
The Synthetic Biology Research Centre (SBRC) has been awarded funding by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) to develop collaborations with Brazilian universities and companies involved in synthetic biology, through workshops and researcher exchanges.
These exchanges will provide future Nottingham Doctoral Training Programme (DTP) students with the opportunity of spending time during their PhD studies to work in leading Brazilian research labs, enhancing their skills with an international dimension. For further details visit the BBSRC DTP webpage.
