Tapping on the strengths, expertise and diverse research interest of the faculty members at the School of Biological Sciences, we offer a myriad of Ph.D. projects. These Ph.D. projects are open to individuals who are interested to pursue their Ph.D. under the supervision of professors from the School of Biological Sciences. Ph.D. students are also expected to fulfil course work, teaching assistantship and other requirements.
The School of Biological Sciences is committed to implement current best practices in the training of our graduate students. Our main objective is to produce research scientists, who have deep and wide knowledge to be competitive in today’s global research and work environment. Our graduate students enrolled in graduate programmes by research may be admitted on a full-time or part-time basis. They will receive supervision and guidance by faculty members to conduct research projects aligned to the overall objectives of their chosen laboratories. We also provide advanced learning and hands-on training through foundation courses and practical modules.
In view of the conditions set forth by NTU for Research Scholarships, and keeping in line with the guidelines set by the Ministry of Education (MOE) for teaching assistantship (TA), the school implemented undergraduate supervision/teaching by graduate students as a training component for our Ph.D. students.
