Our vocationally oriented degree course combines biology and chemistry to examine drug design, targets and delivery. You’ll learn how drugs affect the human body through theoretical teaching, lab work and optional work placements, and will be taught by a number of research-active staff who have close links with the industry. The practical elements of this course will be undertaken in our £30 million Science Centre, which is equipped with over 280 workstations and state-of-the-art specialist laboratories. You’ll also get the chance to undertake a work placement in your third year, where you’ll gain valuable, real-world experience. On completing this course, you’ll be equipped to pursue a career in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. Our previous graduates have gone on to work at companies like BMS Healthcare, the National Health Service (NHS) and Quintiles.
