Course content

This masters course is an integrated, industrially-focused, research training programme for students wishing to develop their research skills in the fields of pharmaceutical and/or biomedical sciences.

Graduates are equipped with a well-rounded, laboratory-based research training and the necessary transferable skills and are fully prepared for employment within the pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences industries, and also for further academic study.

The objective of the course is to develop the skills and the knowledge of graduates enabling them to carry out research in a manner that maximises their personal and professional potential and that will achieve the greatest benefits for the organisations employing them.

Throughout the course students have the opportunity, with guidance from us, to assess their suitability for a career in industry or further research training. The research project provides a real intellectual challenge and enables the student to demonstrate creativity and initiative. The course is structured to include a significant research component for at least 50 per cent of the working year. A series of supporting taught courses make up the rest of the working year.
