|Institution||Aston University View institution profile|
|Department||School of Life and Health Sciences|
Through one of our three specialist pharmacy MSc courses you’ll gain a thorough understanding and awareness of your chosen area of pharmacy, the research methods required to complete a final supervised research project and an overview of the drug discovery process.
These courses are primarily designed to prepare you for an academic or industrial career in the relevant area. You may be a scientist already working within the pharmaceutical industry or a recent science graduate.
You will undertake a variety of compulsory modules and a research project. This project will last approximately four months and you will work under the supervision of recognised experts in their field. The project allows you to undertake a detailed investigation and develop practical expertise in a specialist pharmaceutical sciences area. The University also has strong links with numerous pharmaceutical companies - there may be the opportunity to undertake your project in collaboration with one of these companies.
**MSc Pharmaceutical Sciences**: You will gain the skills and knowledge required as a pharmaceutical scientist - the ability to provide effective pharmaceutical formulation strategies for current and future drug therapies and medicinal products.
**MSc Drug Deliver**y: You will gain an overview of the drug development process from concept to market, gaining hands-on experience of pharmaceutical formulation and drug delivery.
**MSc Pharmacokinetics**: Pharmacokinetics is a key aspect of drug safety and investigates the fate of a drug in the body, and how the substance is absorbed, distributed, metabolised and eliminated. Develop your skill and knowledge in the application of pharmacokinetics to the design and optimisation of new therapeutics. This course has been developed with an emphasis on describing mechanistic approaches to assessing and predicting the pharmacokinetics of drugs throughout the drug development process. You will encounter a broad range of experiences in the application of pharmacokinetics from early discovery and development, through to market authorisation and clinical applications.
