Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology


PhD programmes

Our PhD in Pharmacy & Pharmacology is for graduates who are aiming for a career in academic or industrial research. The PhD is a research degree that is assessed by submission of a thesis and externally examined.

Students coming to do a PhD are normally registered for a MPhil degree and then transferred to the PhD course after one year.

Postgraduate students are offered a variety of practical training courses and are encouraged to attend international scientific meetings.

Projects are available across a wide range of disciplines in pharmaceutical and pharmacological sciences. Please see our research pages for details of the Department's research themes and potential areas that you could research.
