About

The Cardiff University's PhD in Vision Sciences comprises student-led research across a wide range of disciplines, from molecular and cell biology to neuroscience and clinical studies of human vision.

Overview

A PhD by research in Vision Sciences, at the School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, from Cardiff University, is based around a specific, well-defined research topic.

 All students have regular meetings with their supervisory team, as well as an advisor who is not directly involved with the project, and is able to objectively monitor the progress of the research, and to provide independent guidance. In addition to the core research topic, the School provides a diverse programme of transferrable skills training, which complements the Doctoral Academy Programme.

Programme aims

To provide opportunities to acquire knowledge and expertise for post doctoral/lectureship/academic positions in vision science research, neuroscience, molecular biology, molecular genetics, cell biology and vision science as well as for research positions in industry, the Health Service, scientific informatics and science writing.
