International Students

The School of Life Sciences openly welcomes International students to complete postgraduate studies at the University of Dundee.  The School of Life Sciences has a number of different programmes open to International students which are structured to maximise effective guidance and mentoring, in addition to providing a basis for optimally matching students' interests with cutting edge research.  Full financial support is available under some programmes.  We also offer a range of scholarships for outstanding applicants comprising full or partial waiving of tuition fees.

Wellcome 4-Year PhD Programme

The prestigious Wellcome Four-Year PhD Training Programme in Molecular and Cellular Biology allows students to do a year of rotation projects followed by a conventional 3-Yr PhD project. Students select 3 rotation projects of around 3 months duration each, in the areas of "Cell and Developmental Biology, Immunology", "Molecular Microbiology, Biological Chemistry and Drug Discovery" and "Gene Regulation and Expression".

Visit Us

The School of Research main entrance is via the Reception of the new Discovery Centre for Translational and Interdisciplinary Research.  

On arrival at the School visitors should report to Reception, where a visitor badge and parking permit will be issued, if required. Car parking on campus is by permit only and these are issued by the Reception. Permits can be issued on the day or requested in advance of the visit, by contacting Reception (tel: 01382 385828) to arrange posting.

Fundraising

The School of Life Sciences has embarked on a fund raising initiative, the aim of which is to secure enough money to fund three postgraduate studentships.

Although the number of Research Groups in the School of Life Sciences continues to grow, the number of PhD studentships funded by the UK Government has remained static for many years. We believe that many of our former undergraduate and postgraduate students will be interested in contributing to a scheme that will enable more students to be trained in their Alma Mater.
