Doing a PhD

June 12, 2009

During the 2007 series of CABS seminars, Dr Peter Meacock, Sub-Dean for Graduate Studies in the College of Medicine & Biological Sciences at the University of Leicester gave some advice for Bioscientists considering a PhD as their next step after their degree. He has kindly updated his slides.

A video of his original presentation is available here.

Additionally, a panel of current PhD students were interviewed about their experience and the advice that they’d offer. A video of their discussion is available via this link. The panelist were Dan Hayward [BSc(hons) Biological Sciences (Microbiology)], Andrew Chadburn [BSc(hons) Medical Biochemistry, Abbie Fairs [BSc(hons) Biological Sciences (Physiology and Pharmacology)] and Priscilla Lo [Bsc(hons) Medical Genetics].

    can I offer a PhD without offering an MSc. with BSc. Biological Science?

      The need to have an MSc before doing a PhD varies depending where you live. The UK is, I think, unusual in allowing direct transfer to a PhD if you have a ‘good’ BSc, either First class or Upper Second
