Months of entry
On the Pharmaceutical Science and Drug Delivery Systems MSc course, you’ll learn about the methods used to develop the drug delivery systems that are deployed to specifically targeted areas of the body with minimal side effects. With the huge advances that have been made in the formulation of drug delivery systems, the opportunity now exists for you to solve future delivery problems of new chemical entities.
The Pharmaceutical Science and Drug Delivery Systems MSc has been designed to develop your understanding of how drug delivery systems are constructed for specific deployment and controlled release of therapeutic agents. If you're a science graduate with a desire to work in this field, then this course will help you develop the knowledge and skills you'll need.
A flexible modular course, this master's course is designed to promote your personal and professional development. You can choose to start in the autumn or spring and follow either a part-time or full-time study route, allowing you to fit study around your personal and working life. Learning support will be delivered through lectures, tutorials, seminars and practical workshops.
All modules are taught by experts in their field and are supported by our online web-based learning environment accessible from outside the University at any time of day or night.
You'll study five core taught modules and then have a choice of one optional module, from the list of taught MSc modules offered by the subject group, over two semesters. You’ll then carry out an independent research project under the guidance of an experienced academic supervisor during the summer term.
If you’re already be working for a pharmaceutical company and have ambitions to acquire greater knowledge of the field, then this course will greatly contribute to your career advancement and continuing professional development (CPD).
