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.

Hull York Medical School researchers across Hull and York represent a range of disciplines and subjects. As a Postgraduate Research Student you will join one of our established Research Groups or Centres, where you will become a member of our research community and have the opportunity to interact with and learn from our world leading researchers. Whatever your interests and ambitions, our aim is to provide a stimulating and supportive experience through our range of research opportunities and research degrees.
