Cellular and Molecular Biology and Genetics are strongly represented at UC and it is commonplace for students to be taught and supervised by leaders in their fields either from the College or as part of significant academic exchange programmes that we run with the USA and UK. Students benefit from world-class research opportunities and facilities, with UC featuring a strong interdepartmental programme in Biochemistry, a Centre for Bioengineering, a Centre for Integrated Research in Biosafety (INBI) and a Biomathematics Research Centre.
Please note that international students only pay domestic fees for study at PhD level.
