Course summary

•Learn how the fundamentals of biology and chemistry are applied to medical science•Gain insight into how new drugs are designed•Work in state-of-the art facilities and carry out challenging independent researchThis increasingly popular degree provides training in both biological sciences and chemistry and shows how this multidisciplinary area relates to aspects of medicine and drug design.Chemistry is at the core of the degree, with options in biochemistry and biology. An emphasis is given to understanding the chemistry and synthesis of small molecules, particularly in medicine and disease.The first year provides an excellent grounding in all three branches of chemistry – inorganic, organic and physical. Organic chemistry remains a key element in subsequent years of the programme, with an emphasis being the clear link between chemistry and biological sciences. The level and breadth of coverage of organic chemistry is comparable with that normally encountered in a Single Honours BSc Chemistry programme.The second and final years provide you with a wide range of module choice allowing further specialisation in chemistry, forensic science, cell biology, molecular biology and genomics, and biotechnology, alongside core topics including pharmacology, medicinal chemistry and drug design.This degree leads to many career opportunities in pharmaceutical, chemical, biotechnological and other industries as well as medically-related employment and further study.Programme variations•BSc Biological and Medicinal Chemistry with Industrial Experience•BSc Biological and Medicinal Chemistry with Study Abroad
