Course summary

Course Summary

This course will give you a detailed understanding of the practical and theoretical aspects of pharmaceutical science and help develop the skills needed for individual and collaborative research in areas such as drug development.

Pharmaceutical Science is at the interface of biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, toxicology, analytical and medicinal chemistry, all of which will be studied in the degree course. Your studies will take place in laboratories fitted with the latest analytical equipment. Within the research area of drug development you will focus on both drug design, drug discovery and drug awareness as well as neuropharmacology and bioinformatics. You will complete four taught modules, and an independent research project. It will offer you the chance to study a core MSc alongside a specialisation within different areas of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Your Future Career

As a graduate will have a wide range of career options open to you in the broad field of pharmaceutical research. This course provides you with ideal training either for employment or for continuing your studies with a PhD or further work at a university or research institute. You could choose to build a career in pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies that are developing new drugs and evaluating new products. There are numerous small companies in UK and around the world carrying out research and development for drugs.

This course provides you with ideal training to fit into such operations, whether through being employed or by continuing your studies with a PhD. There are also strong potential employment opportunities within chemical companies making intermediates for the drug industry. They require graduates with analytical skills and an understanding of drug development. Major pharmaceutical companies need expert personnel to work in the manufacture, formulation and quality control of medicines and to advise customers on technical aspects of products. The opportunity to work with cutting-edge equipment in our refurbished laboratories means you are likely to be familiar with all the relevant technology when you come to start work or a new research project.
