In the Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences master’s programme you are trained at the leading edge of drug-design and fundamental research of new drugs, optimization of existing drugs, and personalised medicine.
Despite major advances in drug-research, many common diseases such as cancers, neurological diseases, cardiovascular disease and other auto-immune diseases, lack effective treatment, or are found incurable. You are trained for a scientific career in drug research and development. Depending on your interest, you can choose from seven specialisations to further extend your scientific training and theoretical background.

The master’s programme of Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences (BPS) aims to train you in the research area of bio-pharmaceutical sciences and drug research in such a way that you have extensive knowledge and hands-on experience to be able to work independently as a scientific researcher. Moreover, you have a wide range of other career opportunities bio-pharmaceutical industry, science communication, and education.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at BGU, established 2000, conducts vibrant cutting-edge research across a broad spectrum of fields, led by 10 faculty members. Areas of research include biomedical optics, bioelectronics, biomechanics, biomembranes, biomaterials, medical and tele robotics, neuroscience, biopharmaceutics, and physiological signal processing. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories and research facilities supported by numerous prestigious academic funds. The department invests considerable efforts in providing students with hands-on experience in laboratory classes that develop engineering skills, particularly in two clusters: Biomedical Signal processing and Biomechanics. Many of the biomedical engineers who graduated from the department now hold key positions, nationally and internationally, in academic institutions and the biomed industry.
The BME Department offers graduate studies towards both M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Biomedical Engineering. The The M.Sc. degree is typically completed within two academic years (four semesters). The program is research oriented and conducted in the BME laboratories under the guidance of our faculty members. It includes graduate-level coursework and a research thesis that presents the unique scientific contribution of the student. Many of our M.Sc. students qualify for doctoral studies in the Combined Ph.D.t, such that the M.Sc. thesis can also
Applicants to the M.Sc. Program in the BME Department should hold a B.Sc. degree in Biomedical Engineering or in closely related fields from an accredited institution at a minimum GPA of 80/100, as well as have a TOEFL score of at least 85/120 or an equivalent score in an internationally recognized English proficiency exam. The English proficiency requirement is waived for applicants who received their B.Sc. degree in a program taught in English. GRE is recommended but not required. Additionally, prior to applying to the M.Sc. Program, the applicant is expected to contact a potential advisor among the BME faculty, as well as the director of graduate studies for further information.
The research leading to the M.Sc. thesis is conducted throughout the two years of studies. The student is expected to publish and present the research results in leading international journals and conferences. The thesis is evaluated by a scientific committee through a written report and an oral examination.

The MRes in Pharmaceutical Sciences course at UCLan provides specialist theoretical and practical knowledge of drug development, with the emphasis on the procedure of drug discovery, from target identification through to product marketing.
The course comprises of 1 semester of taught lectures, tutorials and lab work followed by 2 semesters of full-time, independent laboratory based research project. This course is taught by researchers who have published extensively in the field of chemistry/pharmaceutics and who have a wide variety of expertise in drug development, formulation and drug delivery.
Students will have the opportunity to select the supervisor and a research topic in a field of biopharmaceutics, inhalation, pharmacokinetics, clinical pharmaceutics, 3D printing, herbal drug extraction, structure modifications, nanotechnology, topical and oral medications.
This postgraduate course will prepare you for further study to PhD level or to undertake jobs in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries in the UK and overseas.
The School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences has close links with the pharmaceutical industry e.g. Rosemont Pharmaceuticals, Wockhardt UK and GSK.
Students will be exposed to the industrial setting through full day visits, where students will observe the manufacture of liquid dosage forms. The visits provide valuable insight into the operation of pharmaceutical manufacturers showing how raw materials are transformed into pharmaceutical products following rigorous quality control and quality assurance procedures throughout the manufacturing process. In addition, there will be a visit from industry experts where the students will have an opportunity to discuss various topics on their employability, careers in the pharmaceutical industry and requirements for industrial jobs.
The assessment strategies include: exams based on mixed short and long essay questions, case studies, PowerPoint presentations, academic reports, lab skills test and oral viva.
