Course summary

The School of Pharmacy aims to produce pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists who are equipped to address future healthcare challenges and optimise the effectiveness and safety of medicines through research and education.

Students have the opportunity to learn from academics who are at the forefront of their fields, together with practising pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists. Pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists have the potential to forge strong and unique bridges between science and healthcare to improve health outcomes, built on the back of developing good relationships with patients, healthcare practitioners and the pharmaceutical industry.

How You Study

Students on all foundation programmes study a combination of core and subject specific modules during the first year as part of an integrated degree programme. The combination of modules studied is tailored to the needs of the full degree programme that students wish to progress onto after successful completion of the foundation year.

Students study a core module at the start of the programme, which aims to introduce key study skills required for further study. Students also study three further modules which introduce fundamental aspects of specific areas of science and mathematics relevant to the chosen foundation year programme. Students will also study an integrative module which is aligned to the full degree programme which students' wish to progress onto upon successful completion of the Science Foundation Year.

Following successful completion of the Science Foundation Year, students will then progress onto the first undergraduate year of their chosen degree programme. This means students will study for a total of four years for a standard degree, or five years if they take an integrated Master’s degree. Students’ final awards upon graduating will reflect the full course title, for example “MPharm Pharmacy with Science Foundation Year”.Course specific information on the full degree programmes within the School of Pharmacy can be found on our course pages.

How You Are Assessed

The way students will be assessed on the foundation year will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a lab report or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples.

Welcome to MSci Pharmaceutical Science with Business

Pharmaceutical Science encompasses a range of scientific disciplines, introducing students to the exciting world of drug discovery, development, and management. Our aim at Lincoln is to produce passionate pharmaceutical scientists who are adept in addressing the healthcare challenges of the future and are well prepared for careers as leaders in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, especially for students who are aiming to have an active role in the running and management of these businesses.

The MSci Pharmaceutical Science with Business begins by offering an insight into the structure, function, and mechanisms of drugs; how different drugs can act on the human body; and how their potentially lifesaving effects can be harnessed safely. During the programme, students will have the opportunity to lead on projects which address real-world problems currently faced by the pharmaceutical industry, alongside the chance to develop an understanding of how their decisions in the management of these projects can have business implications.
