Course Summary

Intro

Our Pharmaceutical Sciences MRes will give you an extensive understanding of the research process and provides an integrated, employment-focused research training programme in pharmaceutical sciences.

Working closely with our researchers with expertise across organic, inorganic, physical, analytical and pharmaceutical chemistry, you will discover how to design and undertake a substantial research project. The project allows you to demonstrate your creativity and initiative and to understand the relevance of scientific research to industry. You will also be attached to one or more of our research groups enabling you to work alongside postdoctoral and other postgraduate researchers with shared interests.

You will develop your lab-based skills using our specialist multi-disciplinary research facilities, preparing you for employment in industry or further academic study. A greater understanding of research literature and the wider research community will be gained through our specialist journal clubs with seminars from expert speakers as well as more informal student-led presentations.

Course structure

The Pharmaceutical Sciences MRes is typically completed full-time in one year, but can be taken part-time over two years. The course is structured to include a significant research component which you will undertake throughout the course. In addition, a series of supporting taught modules further enrich your learning.

To be awarded the MRes, you must obtain 180 M-level credits: 40 credits from taught and subject-specific modules and 140 credits through the completion of the research project.

Careers

The course intends to maximise both your personal and professional potential, and in particular provides a foundation for careers in research, industry, the public sector and academia.

On course completion, you will be equipped with practical research based training, plus the necessary transferable skills to prepare you for career progression.
