    The course introduces students to research skills and specialist knowledge. Its main aims are:

    • to give students with relevant experience the opportunity to carry out focussed research in the discipline under  supervision; and
    • to give students the opportunity to acquire or develop skills and expertise relevant to their research interests.

    In addition to the research training provided within the Department, as part of the Graduate School of Life Sciences students will have access to courses to widen their experience and to enable them to acquire generic skills.


    Continuing

    Those who wish to progress to a PhD after completing an MPhil will be required to pass the masters degree at a
    sufficient level to satisfy the Departmental Graduate Education Committee that they have the skills and ability to
    achieve the higher degree.

    This programme involves minimal formal teaching: students are integrated into the research culture of the Department by joining a research group. Most research training is provided within the group structure and overseen by their research supervisor, but they are also expected to attend the Department’s programme of research seminars and other graduate courses and such other skills training offered by the Graduate School as is relevant to their education. Informal opportunities to develop research skills also exist through mentoring by fellow students and members of staff.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
