Course summary

Without medicinal chemists, life as we know it would be impossible. Modern medicines give us pain relief, cure bacterial infections and fight viruses and cancer. Without the arsenal of drugs at their disposal doctors would be unable to cure many common diseases.It is the ability of medicinal chemists to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of millions of people worldwide that motivates many of our students on our Medicinal Chemistry Integrated Masters.The course structure shares modules with our Chemistry course but you will focus your study more on the organic elements of chemistry with an enhanced level of teaching on drug synthesis, pharmacology and how drugs work in biological systems.You will spend the third year of your degree studying overseas at one of our partner universities. Spending time studying abroad can be a rewarding and life changing experience, giving you a unique opportunity to explore the world, discover different cultures and enhance your career prospects.**Course highlights**- Our courses are shaped by our world-leading research in areas such as chemical synthesis, medicinal chemistry, molecular recognition, enzymology, biophysical and analytical methods, and nanoscience.- There are lots of opportunities for you to work alongside our academics and get involved in the research happening in the School.- During your project work you will access  specialist facilities and laboratories.- Our theoretical modules are supported by extensive practical sessions in the laboratory, allowing you to perform experiments that reinforce the material taught to you in the lectures.- Small tutorial groups are used to support the teaching, so you get regular feedback from the academic staff helping you solve any problems that you might have with a particular topic.
