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.

In most cases, our students choose a project from our advertised project list, but some students design their own project in collaboration with their proposed supervisor.

You are advised to contact your prospective supervisor before you apply. 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, has passed. We are still accepting applications for unfunded places (for example, from candidates with foreign government or charitable funding) and expect to do so until 12 noon BST on Friday 27 July 2018.
