The Department of Oncology offers science graduates and clinical research fellows the opportunity to undertake doctoral research leading to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree via two possible routes:

  1. DPhil in Oncology offers up to four years of study with subject areas covering the entire spectrum of oncology.
  2. DPhil in Radiation Oncology (1+3) is a four year combined MSc and DPhil programme with the DPhil component (3 yrs) covering the treatment of cancer by radiotherapy and its underlying biological mechanisms. This course is designed for  candidates who recognise the benefit of having a much broader understanding of the multi-disciplinary field of radiation biology and oncology. Only one application is required and following successful completion of the MSc, a place on the DPhil is confirmed for the following academic year.

All candidates are encouraged to contact prospective supervisors to discuss projects and their suitability to carry out research in advance of their application.
