Postgraduate research degrees

Be at the forefront of world leading research

As a postgraduate research student with us, you will be welcomed into our thriving research community that is making a real impact in healthcare locally, nationally and internationally. Our research is addressing some of the most important current questions in healthcare, in areas including cancer research, infection control, mental health, diabetes and end of life care.

Our programmes attract students from all over the world, from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds, who are guided under the expert supervision of our researchers - many of whom are internally recognised for their research and are practicing clinicians.

You will be able to take advantage of the postgraduate training scheme training opportunities at both our partner universities Hull and York, as well as the facilities, support and equipment.

The Medical School has a strong pastoral and academic support system that acknowledges the wider life context within which postgraduate studies take place. As personal and social circumstances may change over the course of a study, we are responsive to individual post-graduate student needs, in balance with maintaining academic rigor and high assessment standards for our taught and research programmes.
