Why WMS?

Why do a research degree with WMS?

By studying your research degree with us you will find yourself integrated into the School’s exciting and often ground breaking research. You will have the opportunity to help improve patient outcomes, change care pathways and improve service organisations, change lives, and make a difference.

Students at WMS complete their research from bench to bedside, closely supported by staff and a PGR team dedicated to building a supporting collegiate environment.

WMS encourages those looking to do interdisciplinary research. Researchers collaborate widely across the University campus with a range of partners including:

  • School of Mathematics
  • School of Life Sciences
  • School of Sociology
  • School of Psychology

With the flexibility to study interdisciplinary modules, you will benefit from joint-working in highly reputable schools. Students doing a joint research degree will have supervisions from both departments. Currently, 24% of our research students have supervision from two or more departments.

Warwick Medical School is a collaborating partner in Doctoral Training Centres (DTC) across the University, and has research students involved in each DTC.
