Course summary

Programme description

Our PhD/MPhil Physiology programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Physiology.

Physiology seeks to addresses how the individual aspects of molecular, cellular, tissue and organ function relates to whole organism function and how perturbations from the external environment effect these processes.

Our research utilises emerging technologies in parallel with more traditional studies at whole organism level.

This approach benefits from the sense of perspective gained from the application of a wide range of techniques to understanding physiological systems.

Examples of current physiological research include:

  • cardiovascularand muscle responses to injury;
  • male and female infertility;
  • diabetes mellitusand secretory processes;
  • body fluid homeostasis.

Teaching and learning

PhD/MPhil programmes are based on individual research projects that last three to four years (PhD) or one year (MPhil), working with a specific Primary Supervisor and Co-Supervisor(s).

Applicants are specifically matched with a Primary Supervisor and individual project based on their research interests and background.

International applicants interested in this research area can also consider the our PhD programme with integrated teaching certificate .

This unique programme will enable you to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning, whilst also carrying out independent research on your chosen project.

Career opportunities

Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
