Postgraduate Admissions

"My time at Cambridge has been mostly defined by the interactions with the people in my department. In times when I was overwhelmed with failing experiments and deadlines, I knew I could always turn to the other PhD students in my research institute but also to research assistants, admin staff, technicians and even PIs. Everyone at the department is approachable and ready to make time to help. I also felt inspired being part of the Clinical Neurosciences department as I am surrounded by driven, enthusiastic and extraordinary researchers who strive to produce some of the most outstanding research in the world. I am proud to be part of this community".

"I really enjoyed my time doing a PhD. As a clinician taking time out of training to undertake research, I found the experience an excellent opportunity to complement my practice by exploring the questions that underlie our current understanding of disease. The Department is very welcoming and supportive. There is a good range of research – including basic science, imaging, and clinical trials – that means there are many opportunities to broaden your experience and collaborate with other students and senior researchers. I’d definitely recommend it".
