Course content

Our intercalated BSc gives students already taking a medical or dental degree the chance to achieve an additional degree in this specialist field in just one year.

Pharmacology is the study of how drugs and therapies work, and the development of new ones. As research lays bare the molecular basis of disease and treatment, medical staff and researchers need increasingly specialist knowledge in molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry and chemistry.

The programme will give you expertise in the discipline, and practical experience of laboratory research. It will enhance your understanding of drugs and prescribing, bringing benefits throughout your medical degree and clinical practice.

You'll work on a research topic of your own choosing, alongside international leaders in the field. You could investigate forensic medicine, neuroendocrinology, clinical and vascular pharmacology, immunology and Inflammation, or medical genetics.

Many of our students publish their work in research journals and present at scientific and medical conferences.
