Pharmaceutical Science is at the interface between biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, toxicology and epidemiology, all of which you will have the opportunity to study on this course.

It will give you a detailed understanding of both the practical and the theoretical aspects of pharmaceutical science and you will develop the skills you need to undertake individual and collaborative research.

We have carefully structured the course – which shares two taught modules with MSc Phyto-pharmaceutical Science course – to maximise your employment prospects.

You will be taught by hugely experienced staff with a wealth of contacts from their time spent working in the industry.

You will study in newly refurbished laboratories with the latest analytical equipment.

In particular, the optional Pharmaceutical Analysis module offers you hands-on experience of the state-of-the-art instruments used to analyse active pharmaceutical ingredients as well as finished products.

You will use High Performance Liquid Chromatography, Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry, Liquid Chromatography-mass spectrometry and Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation Time of Flight-mass spectrometry.

We also offer intermediate awards – a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate.
