As a researcher in the School of Pharmacy, you have the opportunity to liaise with leaders in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and to develop strong national and international collaborations.
Research in the School is diverse and multidisciplinary and is generally grouped around two distinct strands: 1) pharmacy education and community engagement with prescribing, and 2) physical pharmaceutics and drug development and delivery. Subsequently, there are opportunities for research students to work with academics across varied topics, including solid-state drug development and biologics delivery.
As a postgraduate student, you can benefit from specialist laboratory space and equipment, a wide range of training programmes designed to enhance your research and transferable skills, as well as support from dedicated academic supervisors.
All of our research students are encouraged to submit papers to scientific journals, present their findings at conferences in the UK and overseas, and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.
The School’s research is diverse and multidisciplinary and it includes the following areas:
All postgraduates are actively encouraged to prepare submission to scientific journals in their field. Students are expected to present their findings to national and international conferences, and also to participate in internal research meetings.
Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisor(s), with the regularity of these varying depending on your own individual requirements, subject area and the stage of your programme.
Please note that all applications in the first instance are through the central online system, via the button at the top right of this page.
To support your experience within the postgraduate research community, new students are encouraged to enrol in October, February or May.
In addition to meeting peers across the University who are starting their research programme at the same time, there is access to a central training programme designed around the first three months of study, and targeted support aligned to each stage of the postgraduate research journey. Alternative enrolment dates may be agreed with your supervisor on an individual basis.
