Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences
Study with us - postgraduate
We offer innovative teaching by experts who are actively researching in their topic of study. You'll also have the opportunity to enter the research environment during projects that might make a real difference to people’s lives and make an impact on modern society.
Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences offers taught Masters courses, providing specialised training tailored to specific employment needs or research areas. Most Masters courses can be completed in 12 months of full-time study and consist of two semesters of taught lectures, tutorials and labs, followed by a summer research project.
Postgraduate research opportunities (MPhil/PhD/DPharm)
We offer MPhil and PhD degrees in a range of research themes in pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences. The MPhil is normally one-year full time and the PhD is normally three-four years full time depending on the source of funding. Part-time study is also available.
This degree responds to an identified need for more NHS pharmacists to engage in research linked to their professional and practice role in areas in which a PhD research programme may not be the most appropriate qualification. The DPharm fits with all areas of the practice of pharmacy including hospital clinical pharmacy, technical services and community pharmacy practice in much the same way that medical staff undertake an MD qualification. The DPharm programme aims to develop, strengthen and enhance pharmacy research and help to build the credibility of Pharmacy as a research focused profession.
