Our PhD students are deeply embedded in their host research teams within our member Units. Many students are supervised jointly by supervisors from more than one unit, to foster cross-disciplinary work.
Access to our rich and varied seminar series is augmented by teaching on entrepreneurism, informatics, computing, and transferable skills by the University Graduate School of Life Sciences. Students receive access to excellent IT, library, recreational facilities, and other amenities, such as subsidised bus routes.
If you are contemplating a PhD within the Cambridge Institute of Public Health, it is important that you first identify a researcher working in an area of research of mutual interest, and who is willing to be a supervisor. Please use this website to find out more about our member organisations and your target research group.
Once you have identified a suitable potential supervisor, you should contact them to find out if PhD supervisions with them or a member of their group are possible.
All our PhD students now engage in 1-year Masters courses followed by a 3-year project-based doctoral programme.
