This is an exciting time to be involved in cancer therapeutics. Based upon a greater understanding of the molecular aspects of cancer, new opportunities for therapeutic intervention have emerged that are effectively 'target orientated'. These new therapeutics are quite distinct from the classical chemotherapeutic agents and they offer the prospect of truly selective cancer therapies that are tailored towards the individual patient's tumour. Cancer pharmacology plays a key role in drug development. In both the laboratory and the clinic, cancer pharmacology has had to adapt to the changing face of drug development by establishing experimental models and target orientated approaches.

The programme is designed to provide you with a 'state-of-the-art' course in modern cancer pharmacology that meets the demand of employers and provides an expert view of the available cancer medicines and the development of new cancer therapies.

It promotes advanced scholarship within specialised areas at the same time as the development of key transferable skills (in IT, communication, and time management) and research techniques. The taught component of the course provides the in depth knowledge and skills necessary to work in cancer research, and is delivered across 2 semesters through lectures, workshops, practicals and 1-to-1 tutorials with ICT staff. You will then join one of our research teams to complete the MSc research project.

"I've had a really good time at Bradford. It has taught me a lot and provided me with a lot of good skills so that I am best prepared for the future. I have already got a job as a Physician Associate and I believe doing my Master's here helped me get this job."

Harpreet Singh Bains, MSc Cancer Pharmacology, 2015

Learning and assessment

A wide variety of teaching methods appropriate to the learning outcomes of the individual modules are employed throughout the programme; formal lectures from ICT research/teaching staff and visiting clinicians and industrial researchers, small group workshops and discussions with peers, laboratory practicals, journal clubs, group and one-to-one tutorials, and a large component of individual research. These are supported by material provided on Blackboard, the virtual learning environment, provided by the University. Students will also attend the Institute of Cancer Therapeutics Research Seminar programme. Self-directed independent learning forms a significant component at MSc level; students will be supported to develop the attributes and skills needed for life-long learning and continued professional development. Directed private study will involve you in a variety of activities, which include directed reading of selected textbooks and specified source literature, Blackboard (directed Web-based materials), report writing, preparing presentations to deliver to your peers, and other assignments.

Career prospects

Many students go on to study for PhDs either at Bradford or elsewhere.

Recent graduates are studying at Dundee, Newcastle and Glasgow universities, and at medical schools in the UK and abroad.

Those in employment are in research and development, clinical research and teaching roles.

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Students are encouraged to access this support at an early stage and to use the extensive resources on the Careers website.

Discussing options with specialist advisers helps to clarify plans through exploring options and refining skills of job-hunting. In most of our programmes there is direct input by Career Development Advisers into the curriculum or through specially arranged workshops.

This student-centred, work-based learning programme gives you the option of completing a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or MSc qualification.

The programme promotes a rigorous scientific approach to clinical pharmaceutical problems, enabling you to act as a clinical adviser. It will extend your knowledge of therapeutics, increasing your value as a specialist in drug-related matters and enhancing your powers of communication and logical argument.

If you successfully complete year one of the programme, you will be entitled to a Postgraduate Certificate, while completion of year two entitles you to the Diploma. The MSc can be completed over a further 12 months, either starting straight after completing the Diploma, or following a break of up to five years.

During your course you will be assigned a practice-based tutor (PBT) from your hospital trust and a clinical liaison tutor (CLT) from LJMU. You will undertake a number of learning activities in your workplace, supported by your practice-based tutor. This will be supplemented by a number of study days, which will usually be taught at LJMU's Byrom Street site in the heart of Liverpool city centre.

Where students meet the relevant criteria, they may choose to study an independent prescribing qualification in Year 2 (subject to accreditation by the GPhC).

The programme’s blended learning approach features a range of self-study activities, including recommended reading, short recorded lectures, and online questions, as well as more traditional seminars and workshops.

The course begins with an induction study day followed by a series of a Therapeutic Study Days on a range of clinical topics taught by specialist practising pharmacists.

Study days and study weekends are designed to ensure you get the most out of your time on campus. One of the study days (paediatrics) is hosted at Alder Hey Hospital – one of the country’s few dedicated children’s hospitals – to give you a rare opportunity to observe specialist paediatric practice.
