Course summary

Our new Pharmaceutical Chemistry degree has been developed together with our industrial partners to produce high quality graduates for the pharmaceutical sector – an area that already employs 67,000 people in the UK and contributes £30.4bn to the national economy per year.

We go beyond organic chemistry - which is traditionally associated with pharmaceutical programmes - to cover many other areas of chemistry and biology. As such, we consciously address the needs of this modern and growing industry.

You will develop a strong grounding in basic chemistry and biology and cover advanced topics relevant to modern pharmaceutical chemistry. As well as underlying theory, the course applies skills and knowledge to areas of pharmacy:

  • metals in medicine, dosage and formulation
  • pharmacology and toxicity
  • analytical science
  • regulatory requirements.

Our existing chemistry degrees are accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). As this is a new course, we will continue to work closely with the RSC and expect this programme to be accredited when the first cohort graduates.

Career

This course has been developed in partnership with industry to provide good quality graduates for the pharmaceutical sector. We incorporate skills development into each year of the degree, giving you a better chance of securing work when you leave university. You will graduate with a range of skills that are essential for the pharmaceutical industry and a wide range of other careers.
