Summary

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.

Whether you are a scientist already working within the pharmaceutical industry or a recent science graduate this course is primarily designed to prepare you for an academic or industrial career in the specialist field. You will undertake a variety of compulsory modules and a research project. The project will last approximately four months and you will work under the supervision of recognised experts in their field. This allows you to undertake a detailed investigation and develop practical expertise in a specialist pharmaceutical sciences area.

We provide modules that will help you to build your research and critical thinking skills for application both within and outside academia. Our broad range of topics such as drug discovery, drug dosage form and design as well as advanced drug delivery and targeting will ensure you possess all necessary skills and tools you’ll need for multiple careers in the pharmaceutical industry.

Studying at Aston will enable you to gain your masters from one of Europe’s leading Pharmacy Schools, at a University that has strong and well established links with numerous pharmaceutical companies – which can provide you with the opportunity to undertake your project in collaboration with one of these companies.
