Our popular and industry-relevant Analytical and Pharmaceutical Science MSc programme is designed for graduates in chemistry or closely related disciplines who wish to contribute to drug development and analysis, a process which requires multidisciplinary skills.
The MSc programme in Analytical and Pharmaceutical Science is taught via a combination of self-learning and short courses with practical laboratory sessions and formal assessment by coursework and examination. There are a range of optional modules to choose from in addition to the compulsory modules which all MSc students take. The programme runs for a full calendar year, starting at the beginning of October and completing at the end of September the following year. The Analytical and Pharmaceutical Science programme can also be studied part-time over a period of 2-5 years.
The School of Science has invested £0.5 million in new equipment for the new £17 million STEM teaching lab facility that this programme will be taught in.
You will have access to a broad range of scientific instrumentation including: 400 MHz, 500 MHz, solid-state and bench-p NMR spectrometers, single crystal and powder X-ray diffractometers, a high resolution inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometer, GC-MS and linear ion trap LC-mass spectrometers, ion mobility spectrometers, gas and liquid chromatographs and tunable nanopore sensors.
