Postgraduate Research in Pharmacy
- Graduate School
We are a top tier, research-led university and are committed to making a substantial impact on the global challenges facing society. Our postgraduate researchers have opportunities to work at the heart of active research teams, challenging boundaries and making real advances.
Research interests in Pharmacy include Biological, Chemical, Clinical and Medical Sciences. This research is broken down into five clusters: Chemical Biology and Medicinal Chemistry, Molecular and Tissue Pharmacology, Patient Care, Pharmaceutical Materials and Soft Matter and Pharmacy Education.
A research degree with an academic supervisor gives you the support to carry out your own independent research. We have a wealth of remarkable academics who can describe current research interests and projects as possible supervisors. We suggest you look at the School's websites for the research clusters, learn about the research interests that align with yours, and the details of the researchers in those areas.
In your application you will need to nominate a supervisor. You should make contact with them to discuss the projects that are offered, and ask for an outline research proposal that needs to be included in your application.
There are three research degrees available:
- PhD by Publication
- Master's by Research
Full- and part-time options are available.
Read more about each of these on our information pages.
The minimum academic requirement for entry to a doctoral degree is a UK upper second class undergraduate honours degree or a Master's degree, or equivalent.
Details of the PhD by Publication, including entry requirements, can be found on our information pages.
If English is not your first language or you are from a country that is not on the UKVI list of English speaking countries, you may be required to provide evidence of your proficiency in the English language. Further information on English language requirements can be found on our information pages.
