Course Summary

Medicinal chemistry is central to the pharmaceutical industry. This course provides you with a sound knowledge of the chemical and biological principles involved in drug design. As well as a firm grounding in general chemistry, research methods and laboratory techniques, you will study sources of drug molecules, mechanisms of drug action, computational drug modelling, spectroscopy, preparation of drug molecules, biochemistry, physiochemical processes, medicinal chemistry, bioinorganic and bioorganic chemistry. A research project completes your studies. You will benefit from newly refurbished, state-of-the art laboratory facilities, industry-standard supporting instrumentation and from learning in a research-active environment.Features and benefits of the course:•If you opt for the four year sandwich route you can spend your third year on placement in industry. If you opt for the four year study abroad route, you can spend your third year at a University in Europe, North America or Australia.•You will study a curriculum designed in conjunction with industry to equip you with the range of skills and strengths that employers demand.•94% of Chemistry graduates go straight into employment and/or further study according to the DHLE survey 2014 for all respondents available for employment or further study and whose destinations are known.•90% of students are satisfied with the School of Science and the Environment (From 261 (70%) students who responded to the 2015 National Student Survey).•We recently invested half a million pounds in upgrading our synthetic chemistry and materials laboratories, including the installation of an X-ray diffractometer which analyses the crystal structure of materials at the atomic level. Our laboratories are state-of-the-art and will give you first hand experience of a wide variety of manual and instrumental lab skills and techniques.
