  • Course description
    Medway School of Pharmacy is a joint venture between the Universities of Kent and Greenwich. Since 2004 the School has invested heavily in facilities and equipment and now houses strong and vibrant research groups that span a range of pharmacy-related areas.

    Staff have a wealth of research experience, and UK and international links with both industry and academic institutions. Our excellent relationship with both Kent and Greenwich gives the School access to world-class research facilities.

    The School will be offering 10 PhD studentships, awarded on a competitive basis, per year until 2010 in a broad range of research areas, including Chemistry and Drug Delivery, Biological Sciences and Pharmacy Practice.

    Normally students register initially for an MPhil. After approximately 1 to 1.5 years, the student can transfer to the PhD programme after the successful submission of a comprehensive transfer report. We also offer part-time MPhil/PhD programmes.
