Graduate studies

Oxford Cancer Academy

Oxford is consistently the world’s best university for clinical, pre-clinical and health training. It is within this enriched environment that the Centre is able to implement its strategy for training the next generation of cancer researchers.

The Centre’s training programme is underpinned by funding for clinical and non-clinical DPhil students and we leverage this funding against other University, CRUK and EU sources to maximise the impact and reach of this resource. Our programme is designed to select from the University’s top-ranked candidates and attracts applications from a wide range of disciplines.

To date, the Centre has awarded over forty clinical and non-clinical DPhil Studentships. Our current training cohorts are well published and have won multiple prizes at international conferences. In addition to their primary supervisors, many DPhil students and CRTFs have secondary or joint supervision and (in some cases) thesis advisors. This provides multidisciplinary support and opportunities to broaden interactions beyond the bench.

More information can be found on our current students, our alumni, existing funding opportunities and our targeted Digital Pathology programme in the links below.
