The first year will provide the training and expertise required for your main project, which takes place in years two to four.
- A comprehensive four-week induction
- Two four-month mini-projects individually tailored to your training needs and interests
- A final three-month block spent developing and refining the project proposal for the main PhD project in consultation with your supervisory team
This will comprise the main project, co-supervised by individuals from across at least two disciplines of fundamental biology, clinical science and population health. There will be regular opportunities to present your work, both in Bristol and beyond, and regular points of interaction with other members of your cohort of students on the BHF programme, as well as other similar programmes in the University of Bristol.
