WHEN SHOULD I APPLY?
If you wish your application for the RDM DPhil in Medical Sciences to be considered for department/University funding schemes, such as the RDM Scholars Programme or the WIMM Prize Studentship, you need to ensure that your application is received and complete by the December deadline.
If you do not wish to be considered for the RDM Scholars Programme or WIMM Prize Studentships you can apply after the December deadline until Friday 30 June 2023. You should consult our main How to Apply page for information on closure dates. If applying after the December deadline, we advise applying as early as you can to allow for all admissions processes to be completed in good time and to ensure that a collge place can be found for you.
If you have any queries about when to apply please contact the Graduate Studies Manager for further information.
