What will I learn?

Programme description

Our PhD Biomedical Imaging Sciences programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Biomedical Imaging Sciences.

Within the field of biomedical imaging sciences, established research programmes exist in neuroimaging, cancer imaging (including mammography) and musculoskeletal imaging.

A particular strength across imaging modalities and disease areas is an emphasis on image reconstruction, image quantification, pharmacokinetic analysis of the imaging data and the application of computer vision to biomedical imaging.

Links with the Nuclear Medicine departments at the Christie NHS Foundation Trust and the Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust enable the set-up of research projects embedded in clinical environments.

The University's imaging facilities principally comprise pre-clinical and clinical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) led by the installation of a new clinical combined PET/MR scanner.

Entry requirements

For international students

Students need to hold, or be about to obtain, an Upper Second class Honours degree (or overseas equivalent) in a related subject area for entry to a PhD programme. A Lower Second class Honours degree may be considered if applicants also hold a Master's degree with a Merit classification. For applicants whose first language is not English, or if you have not studied recently in the UK, you must supply an official IELTS or TOEFL transcript to support your application, or provide a date on which you will be taking a test. If your IELTS or TOEFL expires before the start of your programme, you will need to take another official English test before we can issue you with a CAS for your visa application. This is a requirement of UKVI. We require a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 overall or TOEFL (iBT) 90.

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
