Our PhD programme is for graduates who are aiming for a career in academic or industrial research. The PhD is a research degree that is assessed by submission of a thesis and externally examined.
Students coming to do a PhD are normally registered for a MPhil degree and then transferred to the PhD course after one year.
Postgraduate students are offered a variety of practical training courses and are encouraged to attend international scientific meetings.
As part of the South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP), a BBSRC-funded PhD training partnership between the University of Bath and the Universities of Bristol and Exeter, along with Rothamsted Research, applications are currently being invited for 4 year interdisciplinary studentships in areas of World Class Bioscience and Food Security, including Mathematical Biology. Please see the full list of BBSRC SWDTP projects and the South West Doctoral Training Partnership information.
Details on all our postgraduate programmes can be found on the Study site.
