Postgraduate study

Postgraduate taught degrees

Our new MSc in Pharmacology and Drug Development and MSc in Pharmacology and Education programmes are ideal for students who are interested in understanding how drugs work and how to develop new drugs.

In this programme, you will gain the skills to play an active role in developing the next generation of drugs – from first principles in the lab, testing in clinical trials, or taking new products to clinic. You will work alongside inspiring academics and practitioners, as well as external partners including international pharmaceutical companies and the Home Office.

If you would like to discuss this Masters or have any questions, please contact pgtadmissions@hyms.ac.uk or visit us at one of the Medical School's postgraduate open events.

Postgraduate research degrees

If you are a graduate looking to delve deeper into atherothombotic, respiratory, metabolic, cardiovascular or reproductive research, we welcome you to study with us.

Current opportunities are available here.

Doctoral students are a vital part of our vibrant research community. We provide a supportive and collaborative research environment, where you will have opportunities to work with leading experts and in state-of-the-art facilities both on campus and at our partner hospital sites in Hull.

We offer projects at both masters and PhD level in the areas of cardiovascular and metabolic research. In addition to specific skills developed during a research project, you will develop a range of cross-disciplinary skills through the Medical School's postgraduate training scheme.


Please note we do not have specific funding available within the Centre, as this is usually sought on a case-by-case basis. Funded PhD training fellowships/PhD studentships, when available, are listed here.
