Postgraduate study


Postgraduate study. Extend your knowledge

In Medicine we are committed to the highest quality of provision in pursuit of excellence in biomedical sciences and clinical research.

We have a reputation for academic excellence in all aspects of teaching and research. We operate a highly focused research strategy with interdisciplinary research that bridges traditional subject boundaries. This provides a critical mass of research resources and explores areas of common intellectual interests around important clinical problems.

We aim to provide postgraduate students with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes required for a career in academia, health, industry and a range of other related sectors.

Postgraduate research opportunities

Research opportunities include working towards a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), whilst clinically-trained students have the option of a Doctor of Medicine programme. We also offer a four-year Integrated PhD in Biomedical Science.

Postgraduate taught programmes

We offer a range of postgraduate taught programmes to provide you with qualifications of Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma or Master of Science (MSc). Programmes are available in the fields of Allergy and Public Health.

Our programmes of research

We have a focused research strategy, covering the spectrum from basic science to clinical innovation, with an emphasis on translating new discoveries into healthcare practice.

Academic units of excellence

Our postgraduate programmes are delivered in the multidisciplinary academic units, ranging from Cancer Sciences, Human Development and Health, Clinical and Experimental Sciences and Primary Care and Population Sciences.
