DPhil in Population Health
The DPhil in Population Health is intended to provide students with training in research, in-depth knowledge and understanding of their chosen population health research project, and to prepare them for a career in academia. DPhil students come from many backgrounds including medical practice, epidemiology, statistics, health services research, public health, economics, and ethics.
The Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) offers the opportunity to work closely with world-leading researchers. Students are invited to attend a range of events, planned both by the Research Student Group and the wider department. These include seminars, Masterclasses, social and networking events, and the annual Department Symposium.
The January 2018 application deadline has now passed. Applications received after the January deadline will only be considered if places remain available, and cannot be considered for competitive funding.
A core group of senior academics, led by Professor Jane Armitage, Director of Training and Career Development, Professor Maria Quigley, Director of Graduate Studies, and Associate Professor Jonathan Emberson, Deputy Director of Graduate Studies are committed to the delivery and oversight of the DPhil programme.
The group is supported by a wide network of DPhil supervisors in the department and the wider university.
PART TIME DPHIL IN POPULATION HEALTH
Our part-time doctoral programme offers a flexible way to complete the training in population health research described above. The programme may be undertaken in conjunction with, and contributing to, paid employment in the same research area, or alongside other work or responsibilities with the agreement of supervisors and programme staff that the research is appropriate to part-time study.
This is a six year (18 term) part-time research degree programme. Early submission is allowed from year five (term 13).
Part-time students are not required to live in Oxford, but need to be able to make frequent short-to-medium term visits to the city. The attendance requirement is an absolute minimum of 10 days per term, and students are expected to attend for longer.
This is not a distance learning programme and part-time students are not eligible for Tier 4 student visas. For more information please contact the University's student visa service.
