Course content

This Pharmaceutical Sciences MRes provides an extensive understanding of the research process and provides an integrated, employment-focused research training programme in pharmaceutical sciences.

Working closely with Brighton researchers with expertise across organic, inorganic, physical, analytical and pharmaceutical chemistry, students discover how to design and undertake a substantial research project. The project demonstrates students' creativity and initiative and shows the relevance of scientific research to industry. Students will be attached to one or more of the university's research groups enabling them to work alongside postdoctoral and other postgraduate researchers with shared interests.

Students will develop their lab-based skills using our specialist multi-disciplinary research facilities, preparing you for employment in industry or further academic study. A greater understanding of research literature and the wider research community will be gained through our specialist journal clubs with seminars from expert speakers as well as more informal student-led presentations.
