About Biological Sciences at Brunel University London

Research students are welcomed to Brunel as valued members of our thriving, research-intensive community. A research degree provides the opportunity to investigate a topic in depth, and contribute new knowledge to your discipline, and there are opportunities to study for a PhD (or MPhil) in all academic Schools and Research Institutes across the University. Professional Doctorates and the New Route PhD enhance the doctoral experience through the inclusion of an integral taught programme, and are offered in a number of subject specialisations. PhDTaught Masters of Research (MRes) degrees are also offered in some disciplines as a preparation for a research degree. The ‘traditional’ PhD involves an in-depth exploration of a research topic. The degree is awarded to students who demonstrate (through a written thesis and Viva Voce examination) knowledge and understanding of their discipline together with a distinct and original contribution to knowledge within that discipline. Both full-time (over 3-4 years) and part-time (over 4-8 years) study routes are available.
