The MSc by Research in Oncology is a research degree of up to three years duration. However, the majority of the students in this department complete the course within one to two years.

The Department does not advertise individual MSc (Res) projects. Candidates who wish to apply for this course are requested to:

  1. Review the entry requirements for this course;
  2. Review the DPhil project list to identify Principal Investigators (PIs) who have capacity to take students.
  3. Send them your up-to-date CV together with an outline of the research that interests you and a request to discuss the feasibility of a research project in their group. Please note that PIs might take some time to respond to your email so please allow time for this ahead of the application deadline. You may contact more than one member of staff.

It is important that any potential project complements the research interests of the candidate and the supervisor's research strategy.

Please see the Application Guide website for more details on how to apply for graduate study at Oxford, including how to complete the application form and provide supporting documents.

PLEASE NOTE: The Department of Oncology is not able to provide funding for any MSc by Research students. This course may be undertaken prior to applying for the DPhil but is not a pre-requisite.
