Study With Us
The Department of Oncology has an established, world-leading graduate training programme. As part of this, science graduates and clinical research fellows may enrol in one of our taught MSc courses, or apply to undertake research leading to an MSc by Research or to a Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) through one of our two DPhil courses. These courses are a critical element in our drive to revolutionise radiation oncology and cancer research in the UK, to make advances in radiation biology, and to translate these into improved clinical outcomes for cancer patients.
We are a large multidisciplinary department which excels in a wide range of research areas spanning basic science to translational research and clinical trials. The department is also home to the CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology, whose mission is to explore aspects of radiation biology research that could yield new advances in the treatment of cancer. As a result, our graduates come from a wide range of scientific backgrounds including biology, medicine, engineering, mathematics, chemistry and physics.
Applications for October 2017 entry are now open.
Although applications are received typically until the end of May, applicants wishing to be considered for funding must apply by 12 noon, Friday 6 January 2017 (UK time). Further information on how to apply can be found on the Application Procedure for Students page.
Graduate study with us offers the opportunity for students to work with leading scientists in their field and access a comprehensive portfolio of personal and professional skills development. This training excellence gives our students a strong foundation to pursue prestigious scientific or industry-related careers.
