PhD supervision covers a broad spectrum of research areas – from molecular studies, addressing links between nutrition and genes, through to research on diet and public health. Many of our studies address issues from different viewpoints. For example, work on food quality explores both consumer and producer perspectives including aspects of sensory evaluation, consumer acceptability and the effects of agronomic and production environments on nutrient and phytochemical composition of food. Our interest in the biochemistry of foods extends to pharmacology through the study of medicinal properties of plants.
We have an international reputation for many areas of our research, which creates a dynamic environment for postgraduate study. In addition to subject-specific research training, our Medical Sciences Graduate School and Science, Agriculture and Engineering Graduate School have a thriving postgraduate research culture, with additional support for international students. We have an excellent record for timely PhD submission, provide training in professional/key skills and research techniques, and support personal development.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
An upper-second-class Honours degree, or international equivalent, plus further research experience and/or a further qualification such as an MRes.
Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5, or equivalent.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
