For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via This course is designed for DPhil students who recognise the benefit of having a much broader understanding of the multi-disciplinary field of radiation biology and oncology. This will not only enable the student to have a greater understanding of the context of their research project but also will be helpful in identifying future career opportunities. Only one application is needed and following your successful completion of the MSc your place on the DPhil is confirmed the following year The MSc The MSc is a one-year, full-time, taught course which leads to an MSc in radiation biology, which comprises a five-month core theoretical lecture-based syllabus followed by a six-month research project. The five-month core theoretical course covers the emerging areas of fundamental radiation biology for oncology and its treatment by radiotherapy, along with the hazards associated with radiation exposure. Lectures will also introduce students to key areas of research and innovative treatments in development. The 12 modules are: Each module is delivered over a period of one or two weeks and together the 12 modules comprise the core content of the course. Lectures will be led by local, national and international experts, with time allocated for questions and informal discussion. These lectures are supported by additional tutorials, practical sessions and demonstrations given by local staff to provide a wide knowledge and understanding of radiation biology and oncology. The high-quality laboratory research project in basic or clinically applied research lasts approximately six months. The project will be hosted in the same research group in which they will be registered for their DPhil. Specific training and guidance is provided to enable students to complete the research project. The training, experience and techniques gained during the project will also be invaluable for the subsequent DPhil project. The DPhil On successful completion of the MSc taught programme, students progress to the full-time DPhil in Oncology. Their doctoral research is conducted under the supervision of same academic that oversaw the studentâ??s MSc project. Students begin the three-year DPhil in Oncology programme as a probationary research student (PRS). Towards the end of the first year, students are required to write a report prior to transfer to DPhil (PhD) status. Progress is evaluated by two academic assessors, who are not directly involved in the studentâ??s supervision. Continuation on the DPhil programme is subject to passing the Transfer of Status assessment. Students must confirm their DPhil status and are encouraged to do so during their eighth term and by no later than the end of the ninth term. Students are expected to submit their thesis between the ninth and twelfth terms from being admitted as a PRS. The University has a code of practice for supervision of research under which supervisors must:
