Course content

Toxicology is the study of the interactions between potentially harmful substances, living organisms and the environment.

Our Toxicology programme will show you how chemicals are processed by living organisms and how toxicity arises at the molecular level. It will enable you to identify hazards arising from exposure to chemicals, evaluate the risks posed and to communicate them to the public and scientific communities, and prepare you for employment and further education in all aspects of practical and regulatory toxicology.

Previous attendees of this internationally-recognised programme hold senior positions in toxicology all over the world. Scholarships are available.
