The programme aims to give postgraduate students the integrated, broad-based research training needed to exploit the advances in pharmaceutical and biological sciences and pharmacy practice for conducting contemporary research. Normally, students register initially for an MPhil. After approximately 1 year to 18 months, the student can transfer to the PhD programme after the successful submission of a comprehensive transfer report. We also offer part-time MPhil/PhD programmes.
