Course content

MSc Pharmacology is designed to cultivate the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed for a career in pharmacological science within a wide range of companies and research organisations. You will discover how genes and drugs affect our behaviours and you will gain an in-depth understanding of neuronal gene function, pharmacological practice and application.

Students taking this course gain a high level of familiarity with the latest advances and techniques used in pharmacology, and will have experience of working on commercially relevant topics.

MSc by Research Pharmacology course is aimed at students wishing to be fully prepared for research work on graduation, but who have limited practical laboratory experience. Through studying taught modules directly related to acquisition of research skills and a research project you will emerge as a well-trained researcher with good prospects for further study to PhD or to direct work in industry. You will be working with experts in individual disciplines and will have the opportunity to study a variety of aspects of your discipline of choice.

Students studying on the MSc and MSc (Res) have the opportunity to take a work placement, enhancing your CV and employability even further.

Our MRes Pharmacology is an Applied Bioscience pathway which is divided into a taught element - 60 credit points CP and a laboratory-based research project (120 CP). You will complete the extended research project in one of our highly rated research teams.
