Course summary

Pharmacology is the study of how drugs and medicines work at cellular and sub-cellular levels to produce useful and sometimes harmful effects. This degree aims to impart a sound mechanistic understanding of bioactive substances, particularly those used for the treatment of human diseases. Such extensive study provides students with skills that make them attractive to academia and wider industries for posts in biomedical research and product development.Our main aim is to support the development of research-trained scientists. However, appropriately qualified students may also be eligible to enter the Cardiff University four year Graduate Entry Medicine (GEM) programme after completing this BSc degree. It is not possible to transfer to Medicine after only one year of this BSc course.Our graduates have a range of opportunities on completion of the course. Many undertake further postgraduate training for biomedical research in academia or the private sector, while others pursue careers in the pharmaceutical industry or other biomedical fields.Distinctive featuresThis course is taught by both science and medically qualified staff. As such it aims to provide a varied pharmacological education encompassing both basic science principles and clinically relevant applications of knowledge.
