Postgraduate research

The NHLI prides itself on training the next generation of world leading scientists. We offer postgraduate research opportunities at the NHLI via our PhD and MD(Res) programmes.

Postgraduate taught

We have a portfolio of postgraduate taught courses designed for medics, allied health professionals, as well as future and current scientists. Our courses can complement an existing career, help you reach the next level in your current role, or start out an exciting new career in science or technology.

We endeavor to give our students the skills and training to get where they want to be in the constantly developing fields of science and health in industry, academia or the NHS.


The Institute plays a key role in the delivery of the Faculty of Medicine's undergraduate courses. NHLI's academics hold important leadership roles which go to ensure the College is one of the best places to train in medicine and biomedical sciences. One of our key contributions is hosting the Cardiovascular and Respiratory BScs. These courses form part of the Faculty's undergraduate medicine offering along with the Biomedical Sciences BSc, and these are also open to intercalated students studying medicine at other universities.

Short courses

We have a range of Short courses which complement and enhance our degree courses. Many of our courses are a unique opportunity to meet and learn from truly outstanding academics and clinicians. Please visit our short course pages to see what's on offer, make an inquiry and register.
