A Master's by Research (MSc) allows you to undertake a one year (full-time) research degree. It contains little or no formal taught component. Read more
A Master's by Research (MSc) allows you to undertake a one year (full-time) research degree. It contains little or no formal taught component. This type of study gives you the chance to explore a research topic over a shorter time than a more in-depth doctoral programme.

Research Master's students choose a specific project to work on and have a greater degree of independence in their work than is the case with a taught Master's course.

You'll be expected to work to an approved programme which you will develop in conjunction with your supervisor within the first few months of starting your studies. Whilst undertaking the research project you will also have the opportunity to develop your research skills by taking part in training courses and events.

At the end of the project you write up your findings in the form of a short thesis of around 25,000 words, which will then be examined.

On successful completion, you will be awarded your degree and if you have enjoyed this taste of research you may then decide to apply for the full research doctoral degree (PhD).

You will be appointed a main supervisor who will normally be part of a supervisory team, comprising up to three members. The research supervisor will advise and support you on your project.

As a researcher in the School of Pharmacy, you have the opportunity to liaise with leaders in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and to develop strong national and international collaborations.

Research in the School is diverse and multidisciplinary and is generally grouped around two distinct strands: 1) pharmacy education and community engagement with prescribing, and 2) physical pharmaceutics and drug development and delivery. Subsequently, there are opportunities for research students to work with academics across varied topics, including solid-state drug development and biologics delivery.

As a postgraduate student, you can benefit from specialist laboratory space and equipment, a wide range of training programmes designed to enhance your research and transferable skills, as well as support from dedicated academic supervisors.

All of our research students are encouraged to submit papers to scientific journals, present their findings at conferences in the UK and overseas, and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.

Research Areas, Projects & Topics

The School’s research is diverse and multidisciplinary and it includes the following areas:
-Solid state drug development
-Crystal engineering of salts/polymorphs/co-crystals
-Biologics delivery
-Nanomedicine and targeted drug delivery
-Mucosal delivery of biologics
-Mucosal models to study drug delivery
-Antimicrobials and vaccines
-Organic chemistry
-Bioconjugations and Bio-inspired chemistry
-Development of sequence selective DNA cross-linking agents
-Health education
-Personalised care
-Data-based medicine and assessment of individual risks/benefits
-Application and use of evidence, and pharmacy-led clinical medication reviews

How You Study

Our research environment aims to support students through a specific framework. This covers all aspects of the postgraduate experience, including supervisor interaction, training and access to the facilities and allied support through the Directors of Research and Postgraduates Studies, from initial application to final completion.

All postgraduates are actively encouraged to prepare submission to scientific journals in their field. Students are expected to present their findings to national and international conferences, and also to participate in internal research meetings.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisor(s), with the regularity of these varying depending on your own individual requirements, subject area and the stage of your programme.

How You Are Assessed

A PhD is usually awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic to a group of academics. You are also expected to demonstrate how your research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.

Facilities

Our Science and Innovation Park, home to the Joseph Banks Laboratories, provides specialist teaching suites and laboratories for study and research. It is a regional hub for science industry innovation and development.

Career and Personal Development

Graduates may progress to careers in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics or food industries, while others may choose to work within academia.
