Providing support and development for postgraduate students.

The Faculty of Medical Sciences Graduate School plays an essential role in supporting the progression and development of our postgraduate students. Our students are the academics, research leaders and clinical experts of the future. Our aim is to develop their skills to effectively contribute on a global scale.

We are proud of our success in training and developing our postgraduate students. We work with partners in the NHS and industry to produce individuals ready to make a significant difference.

Postgraduate students are at the core of the Faculty's activity developing essential skills through their research and teaching
