The University of Southampton

Postgraduate study

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.

For International Doctors seeking postgraduate clinical training, opportunities are offered by The University Hospital Southampton please visit the International Doctors page.

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 and an MRes in Stem Cells, Development & Regenerative Medicine.
