Research Degrees


The Department of Neuroimaging welcomes applications from those who wish to study for research degrees in any of our priority areas.

An MPhil or PhD degree requires students to undertake original research work under the supervision of two members of academic staff.  All students initially register for an MPhil, with the opportunity to transfer to a PhD after 6 to 18 months (subject to passing a transfer viva).

Current research is undertaken in the following areas (please follow the links for further information):
