Course Summary

The School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Science is one of the University's strongest areas of research - in the most recent research assessment round, Portsmouth was in the top three for funding in England in the subject Allied Health Professions & Studies. Our researchers are contributing to the Institute of Biomedical and Biomolecular Sciences (IBBS) where the majority of the research was rated internationally as excellent or world-leading. The major strengths of our current research portfolio lie in: Molecular Medicine (including oncology, the neurosciences and inherited diseases such as cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy) and Medicines Research (including drug development, targeting, safety, uses of natural products within medicine). Research in the field of Biomedical, Biomolecular science and Pharmacy can be closely linked to: Health Sciences and Social Work, Psychology and Biology. The Graduate School Development Programme offers a series of dedicated workshops on career planning, specifically for research degree students. You will also have access to consultations with careers advisers or online support. This service is available for five years after graduation. Doctoral graduates are highly-skilled researchers that make an impact in a range of sectors. They benefit from high employment rates and, on average, earn more than holders of undergraduate and Masters degrees. A doctorate demonstrates to employers that you are intelligent, capable and motivated, and that you have advanced technical and research skills.
