Course content

This course will give you a detailed understanding of the practical and theoretical aspects of pharmaceutical science and help develop the skills needed for individual and collaborative research in areas such as drug development.

Pharmaceutical Science is at the interface of biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, toxicology, analytical and medicinal chemistry, all of which will be studied in the degree course. Your studies will take place in laboratories fitted with the latest analytical equipment. Within the research area of drug development you will focus on both drug design, drug discovery and drug awareness as well as neuropharmacology and bioinformatics. You will complete four taught modules, and an independent research project. It will offer you the chance to study a core MSc alongside a specialisation within different areas of pharmaceutical sciences.

This course is designed and tailored to your own preferred specialism in either of the following:

  • Advanced Pharmaceutical Analysis and Quality Control
  • Clinical Biochemistry and Toxicology
  • Health and Disease of Physiological Systems

Teaching will be based on lectures, seminars, workshops, independent web-based learning and laboratory-based learning in our state-of-the-art facilities. The broad field of learning also suits people who are simply interested in furthering their knowledge of the subject. The course can be worked around a full-time job and there are intermediate awards available - a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate.
