Medicinal Chemistry with Science Foundation Year

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. Following completion of the Science Foundation Year, you would begin a Medicinal Chemistry (Combined Honours) course. A Combined Honours course means you will study Medicinal Chemistry with one other subject area, allowing you to gain a wider range of expertise by the end of your course. You can choose which subject to combine Medicinal Chemistry with from a range of pre-selected Combined Honours choices. Visit keele.ac.uk/ugcourses/ to see the full list of combinations available. The Science Foundation Year provides a scientific background customised to your needs, helping you to progress to the subsequent years of a Medicinal Chemistry degree programme at Keele. During your Medicinal Chemistry (Combined Honours) course, you’ll develop deep understanding of the complex chemical and biological processes involved in the design and manufacture of drugs and other therapies for treating disease. This course prepares you to help solve problems at the intersection of chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and pharmacology. The goal of medicinal chemistry is to support the search for new drugs to treat conditions such as heart disease and cancer. You’ll work in well-equipped laboratories, and learn to conduct effective independent research. Keele also offers support to find an industrial or research placement for a summer. You’ll develop essential skills for employment, such as problem solving, presentation and communication. If you take this as a major route, your degree will be accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Medicinal Chemistry is offered as part of a combined degree and popular combinations with this subject include biochemistry and neuroscience amongst others. Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. Our Medicinal Chemistry graduates have excellent employment prospects, whether at the cutting edge of drug discovery or in a wide range of related fields. You might go to work for a pharmaceutical company, either as a research scientist or in a more business related role. Alternatively, you might work in a different organisation as a development chemist, a research assistant, or a site chemist. **Course Start Date:** Monday 24 September 2018 **Enrolment Date:** Saturday 22 September 2018
