Course content

This course is specifically designed for applicants from a pharmacy or pharmaceutical sciences background and those without an in-depth coverage of organic chemistry and organic spectroscopy as part of their previous degree courses. It gives you the practical skills and knowledge to design and synthesise molecules that have therapeutic actions within the body.
