DPhil research projects for entry in October 2016
You are invited to consider a list of research projects offered by the department or submit your own research proposal for consideration. Please note that not all projects may be suitable for part-time study; the project supervisors must agree that your project is suitable for part-time study.
The Department of Population Health is offering an extensive list of research projects available to potential DPhil students applying for admission in October 2016. You are invited to:
- Review the list of projects offered and choose one that most interests you.
- Contact one of the named supervisors associated with the project to discuss your preferred project, with a view to developing a brief research proposal based on the project. This will become part of your formal application. You should be clear about your intention to study part-time when developing your proposal, and your proposed supervisor must support this.
This is a competitive process, and it is therefore possible that candidates may be offered a place on a different project following interview. All projects listed are preliminary in nature and the details, including training and fieldwork, may change before or during study.
Candidate's own research project
Candidates who wish to submit their own research proposal are required to review departmental research, identify a suitable supervisor from within the department and secure their agreement in principle to act as a supervisor, prior to submitting their formal application for the programme. To see the list of potential supervisors please visit the link and then click the 'DPhil Supervisors' tab.
Such candidates should be clear about your intention to study part-time when developing their proposal, and the proposed supervisor must support this.
The availability of appropriate supervision and research opportunities will govern whether the department is able offer a place to a DPhil candidate with their own research proposal.
Applications submitted without following this process and without securing supervision beforehand will not be considered for admission.
