PhD (course code BLZO22)
The PhD degree is a minimum of three years of full-time research with an individual supervisor followed by examination of a research thesis in an oral examination.
This is the principal research degree offered in the Department of Zoology and the great majority of our students are registered for it.
At the end of their first year of study students are required to complete a satisfactory First Year Report and viva. A brief report (without viva) is required at the end of the second year and third year.
MPhil in Biological Science (course code BLZOM1)
The MPhil is one year of full-time research with an individual supervisor followed by examination of a research thesis in an oral examination.
The MPhil is most commonly taken as a stand-alone research degree by candidates with only one year of funding.
If this course is taken as part of a route to the PhD a further three years of study and funding are required as well as satisfactory performance in the MPhil.
The PhD project may draw on the topic of the MPhil, but the same work cannot be presented for both degrees.
How to Apply- Applications for admission to the University should be made via the University’s online Applicant Portal.
If you are interested in applying for either the PhD or the MPhil course, the next step is to identify a potential supervisor andfind out if they can accommodate you in their research group. Make contact with them to discuss ideas for research projects and, if at all possible, to arrange a visit.
If you are interested in more than one supervisor within the Zoology Department, you can name them as first and second choice in your application, but if you want to apply to supervisors in different departments, you will have to make separate applications (one to each department). Only one application is required if one project involves a co-supervisor from another department.
There is a fee of £65 (this can cover up to three separate applications within the School, see here for further details), therefore we recommend that you do so only when you have found someone who wishes to supervise you.
Competition for admission to the University of Cambridge graduate programme is intense. Like all departments in the Graduate School, we require all our graduate entrants to have:
- at least a 2.1 in an Honours degree or equivalent (e.g., CGPA 3.5/4.0) in a relevant subject
- two excellent academic references
- fluency in the English language – recent IELTS test with an overall band score of at least 7.0 with not less than 7.0 in speaking, listening and writing, and 6.5 in reading.
