Course content

IMSCaR uses the four paper model for its PhD programme whereby the thesis comprises four pieces of independent but related research that are of a publishable standard in a high quality peer reviewed journal. In addition to the support of the research project's supervisors and from fellow postgraduate research and professional researchers within all of IMSCaR's three research centres and especially its NWORTH Clinical Trials Unit, there will also be the opportunity to undertake taught modules at postgraduate level as well as attend workshops and courses provided for postgraduate research students by the University's Academic Development Unit. Any taught modules and courses will not count as credits towards this or any other qualification but, if identified as being of developmental value by the student and the supervisory team, will provide the extra skills and knowledge needed to undertake postgraduate research.

Information for international students

International students must also have IELTS of 7.0 or above.
