Opportunities for International Students

If you have enthusiasm for research and access to your own funding, you can apply to study for a PhD or MPhil in the Institute of Integrative Biology.  This allows you to follow your own research programme with supervision and guidance from academic staff in IIB. 

A fees bursary (for all tuition and research fees) may be available.

To find out whether we can offer you supervision for PhD/MPhil studies in your area of interest, look at the Research and Staff web-pages.  You can make contact by email with relevant members of academic staff to enquire whether they could supervise your research.

The next step is to make a formal application for PhD or MPhil study, stating your research area and the name of your proposed supervisor within IIB.

We also welcome students from the following programme:

Mahidol University, Thailand 

There is a programme to fund outstanding graduates from Mahidol for doctoral study at University of Liverpool. The Partnership between Mahidol University and University of Liverpool was been established in January 2010.

Two named scholarships (Stang Mongkolsuk and Chamlong Harinasuta PhD Scholarship), who were the founding Deans of the Faculty of Sciences and Faculty of Medicine respectively, and had received their PhDs in Chemistry and Tropical medicine, respectively. An additional scholarship was created in 2015 which is opened to all of the Faculties of Mahidol for any projects from FSE and FHLS of the University of Liverpool.

In 2015 the agreement was renewed. Since then, 14 students have benefited from the program, 6 of them have successfully graduated. The unique aspect of this scheme is that after spending four years in Liverpool, students return to Thailand and are made faculty members of Mahidol University.

For more information about the Mahidol scheme, please contact Dr Svetlana Antonyuk.
