Course summary

Pharmacology is the study of the action of drugs in the widest possible sense; it encompasses many types of chemicals that affect the functioning of the body rather than just medicines.For the first two years you will study a number of core units run by the School of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience and choose others from a wide selection, such as biochemistry, molecular genetics, infection and immunity, cellular and molecular medicine and mammalian physiology. Final-year units emphasise the molecular mechanisms of drug action and take you to the forefront of current research.In your final year, formal lectures are replaced by seminars and tutorials and a fully-integrated programme of activities develops your transferable personal and professional skills.We use a wide variety of teaching approaches, which are both traditional (including lectures, practical work and tutorials) and innovative; for example, our practical teaching is currently enhanced by self-directed learning using computer-assisted packages, such as eBiolabs.This course is available for intercalation.
