Course summary

Pharmacology is the study of how drugs act on the human body and vice versa. It is the science of drugs, as well as their physical and chemical properties. It is thanks to Pharmacologists that an individual can take an aspirin for a headache, or an anaesthetic for a filling. The course will cover the drugs that affect major systems of the body including the central nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory and endocrine systems. Topics include pharmacological techniques, toxicology and anticancer drugs. The course will provide an in-depth knowledge of a wide range of drug classes, safety and efficacy and drug action. It also will give a sound understanding of the drug development process. This course includes a foundation year. This course will equip you with the skills needed for a wide range of careers in healthcare, working in the NHS, medical research laboratories and/or teaching in academia or pharmaceutical research. You may also decide to pursue a medicine or dentistry degree.
