Our researchers are internationally recognised as being at the cutting edge of their fields with proven translational capabilities into the clinical environment. Postgraduate study within our Faculty will provide you with the challenges and opportunities to forge your own research studies within a renowned centre of excellence.

As well as access to some of the world’s best research and researchers you should also take advantage of the many opportunities to engage, socialise and collaborate with your fellow students through the PGSA. Furthermore our courses and workshops will enable you to increase all of the skills required of a modern day postgraduate student from scientific writing through to oral presentation, and then to test those skills at our student led conferences HealthEx and Exposure.
