Course summary

Learn to develop more effective treatments for diseases and discover how molecules may modify living systems. You’ll be trained to become a research scientist. This course will provide you with an integrated view of drug action linked to disease-related functions of the major organ systems.

You’ll gain knowledge of the fundamental principles of chemistry, biology and the physical sciences, and will be able to apply these principles to specific problems in drug discovery. Through our hands-on classes, you’ll develop practical laboratory skills.

You’ll also have the opportunity to complete the Home Office Licence Module Training Course during your degree.

You’ll be trained to be a high-quality, innovative and independent research scientist. You could go on to work on the development of new treatments for both human and animal diseases, or in related fields such as marketing, drug regulation or scientific communication.

The Master of Pharmacology (MPharmacol) course provides you with a greater exposure to research and practical techniques. As part of the MPharmacol you’ll undertake a placement year in a pharmaceutical company, research institute or university. You will also complete an extensive research project, giving you invaluable experience of working in the field.

Placement

The MPharmacol course includes an integrated placement year undertaken in research labs in industry, research institutes or academia. It is an opportunity for you to apply your skills and knowledge to a year working full-time in a role to match your future career ambitions. It will broaden your experience and transferable skills, giving you a competitive edge when applying for graduate jobs.

Prepare for your future

On graduation, you’ll be well suited to research or drug development careers in the pharmaceutical industry. You’ll benefit from our strong links with the pharmaceutical industry, with recent employers of our pharmacology graduates including GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca, and UCB.
