Are you an international student?
Visit the International Students section on our website to find out the latest news and everything you need to know about studying in Malaysia.
PhD degrees are offered on a full-time, part-time, and also on a 2+1 basis. Part-time is available to Malaysian students only. The 2+1 structure allows you to complete two parts of your degree in Malaysia and one part of your degree in the UK. We also offer the opportunity for you to study for a year in the UK – projects under this scheme will be based upon the feasibility of the research undertaken and will require a co-supervisor at the UK campus. The full-time PhD would normally take three years of full-time research with a further year for writing up.
There are presently over 25 postgraduate students registered on the PhD programme, whilst a number of our PhD graduates are now employed as pharmacy lecturers in Malaysian universities.
Our MPhil degree may be awarded after one year of study – followed by a one year write-up period – if you or the University decides that this is a more appropriate qualification.
Our MPhil and PhD degrees are based on research in the School of Pharmacy. Some of the areas in which postgraduate degrees can be studied are given below.
MPhil : An upper second class honours degree (or international equivalent) in pharmacy or a related scientific discipline. PhD: A masters degree (or international equivalent) in pharmacy or a related scientific discipline. Applicants must have graduated from an approved university. Other equivalent qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
