Pharmacy and Pharmacology

Research in pharmaceutical and pharmacological sciences touches all aspects of the design and use of drugs and medicines. These include drug discovery, formulation and delivery, neuroscience, regenerative medicine, immunology, infection and immunity, pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacy practice. Study in these areas provides the chance to experience cutting edge research that is directly relevant to some of today's major challenges in healthcare and the pharmaceutical industry.

Entry requirements

1st or good 2nd Class Honours degree (or equivalent) in an appropriate subject or or lower qualification with extended and responsible experience in a relevant field in industry, teaching or government establishment, or in some branch of medicine or medical science, together with authorship of scientific or medical papers. For applicants whose 1st language is not English: IELTS 6.5 (with no less than 6.0 in each of the 4 components).

Assessment methods

PhD students are expected to carry out supervised research at the leading edge of their chosen subject, which must then be written up as a substantial thesis. The confirmation of PhD status is subject to students passing an assessment process, which normally involves submission of written work and an oral examination. The final stage of the PhD degree is the oral or viva voce examination, in which students are required to defend the thesis to expert examiners.
