Course summary

Medicinal and Biological Chemistry requires a thorough understanding of molecules, their structures, properties and synthesis.

However, it also demands the chemical understanding of the nature of biological structures, from macromolecules to cells, the design of pharmaceutical materials in the laboratory and their function in clinical settings.

The knowledge and skills acquired in the course will leave graduates well equipped to compete for positions related to 'drug discovery' in chemical, pharmaceutical or biotechnological companies.

The degree consists of advanced lecture courses in: Biological Chemistry; Biomacromolecules; Chemical Medicine; Biophysical Chemistry.

These are studied concurrently with a predominantly practical based course offering an introduction to research methods.

Career opportunities

As a graduate, you will be well suited to take up roles in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, either in research and development or sales and marketing. You will gain valuable work experience in a real-life research environment.

Our courses also teach you the valuable skills you need to move into other areas outside chemistry. Careers in IT, management or finance are possibilities after completing your degree.
