    The DPhil in Clinical Neurosciences offers excellent opportunities for high quality research training, for both clinical and non-clinical graduates, in wide-ranging leading areas of clinical neuroscience.

    According to the latest statistics available, 86% of DPhil in Clinical Neuroscience alumni are employed across a wide range of sectors with the remaining 14% going on to further study.

    Past students from the Department of Clinical Neurosciences have gone on to careers based both in the UK and other countries in teaching and research in universities or back to clinical posts.

    Applicants are strongly advised to visit the Medical Sciences Graduate School website to help them identify the most suitable course and supervisors.

     

    The Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences incorporates the Division of Clinical Neurology, the Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology, the Nuffield Division of Anaesthetics, the Oxford Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain (FMRIB) and the Centre for the Prevention of Stroke and Dementia (CPSD). Each division hosts world-leading programmes in basic, translational and clinical research. 

    The DPhil in Clinical Neurosciences will develop your skills through a range of research and practical training. You will work alongside your supervisors to develop your programme of study which is normally part of a larger research group with shared interests. Most graduate research in the department is interdisciplinary and in collaboration with research leaders at other research centres- such as the MRC Mammalian Genetics Unit at Harwell and the National Institutes of Health, USA- as well as many other University departments.

    You will be encouraged to make the most of the doctoral training and research methods provision available across the Medical Sciences Division and to attend departmental and divisional seminars. As a DPhil student you will be given the opportunity to present your work at a variety of seminars and sessions in the department.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    program_requirements

    Applicants are normally expected to be predicted or have achieved a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours (or equivalent international qualifications), as a minimum, in a relevant discipline (eg neuroscience).

    For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA sought is 3.5 out of 4.0. However, entrance is very competitive and most successful applicants have a first-class degree or the equivalent.

    A master's degree is not a prerequisite for admission.

    If you hold non-UK qualifications and wish to check how your qualifications match these requirements, you can contact the National Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (UK NARIC).

    No Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or GMAT scores are sought.
