Course Summary

The programme consists of a combination of research skills training provided by the Graduate School Postgraduate Training Programme, together with supervised independent research, leading to completion of a PhD thesis. Our students enjoy expert supervision, extensive training, leading facilities, strong industrial links with major pharma companies and the opportunity to undertake short commercial placements. The school encourages students to present their own original research as abstracts and oral and/or poster communications within the school and at national and international scientific meetings. 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. Our Careers and Employability Service offers a range of services including advice sessions, employer events, recruitment fairs and skills workshops – and once you have graduated, you will have access to the service for life.
