The Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS) looks after the educational and career needs of graduate students and early career researchers (postdocs) in the Faculties of Biology, Clinical Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and affiliated Partner Institutions. The Graduate School encompasses 26 internal Departments, Centres and Institutes and 14 external University Partner Institutions and has around 1800 Masters and PhD students.

Our main activities relate to funding, skills development and training, and policy initiatives. Our students and postdocs play an active role in GSLS activities through the GRASP forum.

We advertise internal and external events on this website and produce a regular newsletter highlighting key training activities. 

Information for prospective students can be found here.

Information for current students can be found here.
