Why study with us?
- Research opportunities in wide-ranging disciplines
We can offer postgraduate research opportunities (PhD, DM, DClinPsy, DForenSci, Mphil and MRes) to students who have graduated in a variety of undergraduate subjects, such as microbiology, statistics, science and geography and medicine.
Funded studentships and self-funded PhD projects
Self-funded PhD projects are always available within our research groups and divisions.
Funded opportunities are also often available. See:
We provide for peer-support groups which consist of PhD students who meet regularly (on a voluntary basis) to discuss areas specific to their PhDs or general topics related to conducting one. The groups are facilitated by students and are recognised as part of the School of Medicine's mentoring scheme.
Our research supervision and education processes have been built upon years of experience and global best practice, and have resulted in excellent completion rates, happy students and plentiful, high-impact research publications.
Our students are the next generation of high-profile biomedical researchers and teachers and go on to enjoy successful careers in hospitals, universities and industry.

The diversity of the Nottingham School of Medicine’s interests, together with the collaborative nature of our research and our association with QMC - one of the largest hospitals in the UK - creates wonderful opportunities for our research students to access leading academics and clinicians and make use of extensive specialist research facilities.
