How to apply John Cairns

To apply for a place on the DPhil in Medical Sciences you will need to submit an application using the online application form.

The deadline for all internal funding schemes has passed. If you have your own source of funding, you can still make an application to start your DPhil in October 2017.

You are strongly advised to contact your prospective supervisor before you apply, as some supervisors may already have taken on students for the coming year and may not be able to take any more. Please be aware that some supervisors receive a large number of enquiries from prospective students, so please allow time for a response and keep your message brief and to the point. Supervisor contact details can be found on their profile pages.

You can find full details on the application process in the University’s application guide.

Course-specific information on the supporting materials required and how your application will be assessed can be found on the University’s DPhil in Medical Sciences page.

The deadline for applications for any Oxford-administered scholarships, including the RDM Scholars Programme and the WIMM Prize Studentship, is 12 noon GMT on Monday 8 January 2018.

We will interview shortlisted candidates in the week commencing Monday 22 January.
