Our supervisors are offering summer placements of one week to give University of Manchester and St Andrews-Manchester Pathway Medical School students a taste of academic research and our MB-PhD programme.
The placements will be with various supervisory teams/lab groups where you will get a valuable insight into the real world of academic research.
All these supervisors are offering projects to MB-PhD applicants this year, so if you are considering applying for the programme now or in the future, this is a brilliant opportunity to meet the team and to find out if this is the path for you.
See details of the placements available and the supervisory styles: MB-PhD summer placements (PDF).
Placement weeks will be arranged between students and supervisors at the end of the summer term (w/b 12 and 23 June) or the beginning of the new academic year (4-8 September).
