Summary

As the demand for new pharmaceutical solutions to medical needs continues to grow, so does the demand for skilled chemists with the ability to contribute to drug development and analysis. Our popular and industry-relevant pharmaceutical science degree is designed for graduates in chemistry or closely related disciplines who wish to work in this fascinating and important field.

Through a broad range of core and optional modules, you will be able to build essential multidisciplinary skills and deepen your understanding of key pharmaceutical science concepts, whilst developing vital research and professional skills.

Your studies will be enhanced by the recent investment in new science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) teaching lab facilities and equipment, as well as the cutting-edge insights of our academic staff. You will have access to a broad range of scientific instrumentation including: 400 MHz, 500 MHz, solid-state and benchtop NMR spectrometers, single crystal and powder X-ray diffractometers, a high resolution inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometer, GC-MS and linear ion trap LC-mass spectrometers, ion mobility spectrometers, gas and liquid chromatographs and tunable nanopore sensors.

The programme is taught via a combination of self-learning and short courses with practical laboratory sessions and formal assessment by coursework and examination. There are a range of optional modules to choose from in addition to the compulsory modules which all MSc students take. The programme runs for a full calendar year, starting at the beginning of October and completing at the end of September the following year. The programme can also be studied part-time over a period of 2-5 years.

As a student on the programme you will join an inspiring international community typically comprised of students from a wide range of countries, including China, Nigeria, Oman, USA, UK, Brunei, Latvia and India.
