Phytopharmaceutical Science, the development of drugs from plants and other natural compounds, is now a significant area of research for the development of new medicines with a sound historical basis. Many drugs listed as conventional medications are derived from plants and were originally administered in plant form.

Over recent years, in their search for novel therapeutic agents, there has been a huge rise in interest from the global pharmaceutical industry centred on the isolation and evaluation of compounds from plants used in medical treatment derived from traditional medicine sources.

Based on the increasing importance of this emerging area of natural product science this programme of study will enable individuals with specific expertise in the regulation and development of plant-based medicines to pursue a career in the rapidly expanding phytopharmaceutical industry or a government regulatory body.

The MSc in Phytopharmaceuticals is a taught postgraduate programme which provides an in depth study of natural products, their analysis, value as medicines and regulatory issues controlling their production and sales.

As a MSc Phytopharmaceutical student, you will:

receive a high quality programme which will provide you with the expertise to work in the pharmaceutical industries emerging area of natural product science
be supported throughout your studies by our experienced, dedicated team of staff
study in excellent facilities, including new refurbished laboratories with the latest analytical equipment and Medicinal Herb Garden.

Programme structure

Phytopharmaceuticals is multi-disciplinary. You will study, plant chemistry, phytochemical analysis, analytical methods, quality control, toxicology, ethnobotany, herbal therapeutics, legislation and regulation of herbal products, and research methods.

In order to be eligible for the award of the Postgraduate Diploma, a student shall have passed the two specialist modules, the optional module and the core module; or one specialist module, the research project and the core module (120 M Level credits). Students obtaining 60 M level credits (by the core module and either specialist module or the research project) may be considered for the award of Postgraduate Certificate in Life Sciences.

In order to be eligible for the award of the Masters degree, a student shall have passed both specialist modules, the optional module, the research project and the core module (180 M level credits).

You will be assessed throughout the programme in practical work and theory. Coursework varies and includes laboratory work, data analysis, essays, presentations and examinations.

Career opportunities

Feedback from industry suggests that natural product science is an expanding area of interest resulting in new employment opportunities for qualified individuals with specific expertise in the regulation and development of plant based medicines. Opportunities also exist in teaching, writing and horticulture.
