The School of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience has an international reputation for research excellence in neuroscience, cell biology and signalling, and cardiovascular biology. The school is highly committed to training the next generation of scientists from both the UK and overseas, taking great pride in the standard of our postgraduate provision.

New students enter an exciting and vibrant research environment where we support and challenge our postgraduates to excel. All postgraduates receive extensive research and transferable skills training.

The school is well supported by programme and project grants, particularly from the Medical Research Council, BBSRC, Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK and British Heart Foundation. This has enabled the school to provide a vibrant environment for research; we have more than 100 PhD students at various stages in their research projects.

Entry requirements

A minimum of an upper second-class honours degree (or international equivalent) in a relevant subject is required for entry to the PhD programme. Applicants who have completed their degree in certain countries will require an MSc to enable them to enter our PhD programme. We may consider MSc by research applications from candidates with a lower second-class degree (or international equivalent). Applicants for the MD should be medically qualified and should consult with the graduate director before applying.
