Course Summary

A research degree is a very individual experience, more so than an undergraduate degree. While the overarching structure will be identical or similar across the university, individual research projects, research interactions and assessment interactions will differ. This environment can provide a rich learning experience for student cohorts discussing their experiences.

A research degree has an exciting scope for collaborations and working as a team and as such, learning or enhancing your communication and people management skills. It is highly creative and can be more unpredictable than an undergraduate degree. A research degree is not simply about collecting results or data but also querying these and discussing them with others. Learning is continuous and poor experimental results can form part of research learning and success. Unlike a typical classroom experience of an undergraduate degree, a research degree will empower you to drive your own learning experience and expand your knowledge in a variety of ways.

The Department of Surgery and Cancer provides a number of research opportunities. We currently have over 400 research students studying towards either a PhD or MD (Res). The Department welcomes research degree applications from around the world, provided that they meet Imperial College’s eligibility criteria. We can provide projects in any of our research areas, reflecting the patient-centred nature of our translational research.
