A PhD at the UCL School of Pharmacy will allow you to pursue original research and make a distinct and significant contribution to your field.
We are committed to the quality and relevance of the research supervision we offer and, as an MPhil/PhD candidate, you could work with academics at the cutting edge of scholarship in pharmacy, pharmaceutics and biomedical sciences.
Furthermore, as a research student, you will be an integral part of our collaborative and thriving research community.
What to expect on the programme
Our PhD Training Programme includes short courses that are specifically designed for the needs of our students. In addition to lectures and workshops on generic skills, this programme includes the School of Pharmacy's Expert Lectures in which we teach basic and advanced experimental techniques.
PhD students are required to attend the PhD Research Days, which take place twice a year, (April and September). To foster further our students’ academic development, we offer additional faculty funds, which can assist them with the costs of conferences, international collaborations and other research activities.
The School supports the Postgraduate Society (PGS) which organises social networking, career workshops and seminars for the staff and students. The Presidents of the Society are elected annually.
Students have ample opportunities to practice networking with their peer group both within the School and within the wider UCL community.
UCL School of Pharmacy welcomes applications from UK, EU and international students.
There are two application deadlines every year: 31st March (for October entry) and 31st October (for April entry).
