The principal aim of the MSc programme in Pharmaceutical Science is to provide graduates with enhanced prospects for employability as discovery or development scientists in the pharmaceutical, healthcare or bioscience industries.

This Masters programme provides expert critical and technical knowledge related to the development, analysis and production of medicines, the drug industry and regulatory affairs. You will study recent trends in chemical, biological and biotechnological therapeutics and evaluate the latest technologies used in the pharmaceutical industry. You will also gain an understanding of the processes and methods used in clinical trials and the regulation of medicines.

You will acquire broad knowledge of contemporary, integrated drug discovery strategies and develop the skills to communicate effectively across the key, diverse component disciplines with other professional scientists and non-specialist audiences. You will develop the attributes necessary for successful careers in pharmaceutical science, undertaking lead research, development or management roles.

A specific aim is to enable you to communicate effectively in all forms of media across the key components in pharmaceutical science from initial concepts to pre-clinical and clinical development. You will also develop your knowledge of key skills.

Projects such as data collection, time management, organisational skills, review and synopsis, computing and statistical analysis. The programme further aims to equip you with versatile skills in the theoretical understanding, practical execution and critical evaluation of pharmaceutical science principles to underpin your professional careers. You will develop the practical skills and knowledge base to allow you to proceed to PhD level.
