At a glance

Our drug discovery postgraduate course gives students an understanding of the development of new drugs; from the cellular processes that are important to target, through to the synthesis of new medicinal compounds. You will be given advanced training in our teaching laboratories, which will lead to your individual Masters Drug Discovery research project.

The course is made up of three semesters over 12 months. Over this time students cover 90 credits worth of units, which include 12 credits of optional units per semester.

The first two semesters consist of taught material, including Advanced Practical Laboratories, with exams at the end of each semester.

The third semester is focused on the student’s practical project which is carried out in our research labs.
