Our PhD candidates come from a wide variety of educational establishments and diverse backgrounds; they are all actively engaged in conducting and publishing original research. The Bioengineering DTP programme is usually 3 years long, followed by a writing up period of one year maximum. Our Department prides itself of remaining committed to conducting high impact research. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014), 95% of the Department's returned research was judged to be either world-leading or internationally excellent.  

In addition to completing and defending a PhD thesis, most of our candidates present their research at conferences, attend workshops and are engaged in supporting the delivery of teaching on our undergraduate and master’s level programmes. In some cases, research is conducted in collaboration with companies.
