Course Summary

This programme allows you to undertake a substantial amount of independent research while gaining 20 credits of transferable skills training. Given the broad range of interests of the academic staff, it is possible to conduct a research project in most areas of pharmacology; the project should be developed in discussion with the identified academic supervisor/s. The programmes are flexible in nature and allow you to take some additional accredited taught credits, in consultation with your supervisor. Those who take up a postgraduate research opportunity with us will not only receive support in terms of close contact with supervisors and specific training related to your area of research, you will also benefit from dedicated careers advice from our Careers and Employability Service.
