We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
It’s our mission to prolong and improve the lives of patients, and we seek to do this by conducting world-leading research in areas such as neuroscience, oncology, infectious diseases and more.
The impactful, high-quality research that we undertake influences how we teach across all of our postgraduate courses. In many areas, our research activity spans the spectrum from basic science up to practical clinical applications. We pride ourselves on collaboration between clinicians and non-clinicians, and many of our courses include teaching from practicing clinicians as well as research active academics.
Medical science must ultimately be to the benefit of patients. To help us better understand the needs and experiences of patients, we actively involve them in our research and teaching.
Many of our courses include a high degree of patient contact, allowing you to reflect on your learning in the context of real people with real conditions and diseases.
If there’s one thing that our students tell us, it’s that they truly appreciate and enjoy the friendly and supportive community that we foster. It’s important to us that you feel well supported during your studies, and have the opportunity to achieve your potential.
Many of our postgraduate students go on to study for a PhD with us, or even progress into becoming staff members here, demonstrating that the positive and happy experience people have here makes them never want to leave.
All of our courses are designed to help you develop your career and we offer a broad range of campus-based and online courses. We currently offer a part-time distance-learning course in Neuroscience and Neurodegeneration, so you can study for a higher degree without having to leave your current post.
