Course content

This exciting new MSc is designed to equip students with an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of drug discovery, integrating teaching in chemistry and biology to develop graduates who have exceptional scientific understanding and a host of transferable skills. The course blends the two fundamental disciplines underpinning drug delivery, and provides students with the opportunity to practise background theory within the productive research-led environments offered by the Schools of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. Nottingham has world-leading expertise in the areas of drug discovery and pharmaceutical science, and students on this course will have the chance to learn directly from staff at the forefront of the field.

The course content covers all aspects of drug delivery, and includes a 12-week (60 credit) research project based in our laboratories, encouraging the practical application of the theory taught within the programme.

The course will be technology-rich, using online learning packages to supplement face-to-face teaching and innovative assessment methods.
