Pharmacology Extended Degree

This cutting-edge extended pharmacology degree focuses on the study of chemical compounds and their interaction with living organisms. Placing special emphasis on natural and synthetic drugs and their uses in the fight against disease, this course is perfect for you if you're aiming for a career in pharmacology, but don't have the qualifications necessary for entry onto a traditional three-year Pharmacology BSc (Hons) degree programme. Designed to prepare you for a career in pharmacological research, throughout the degree you’ll study the effects of different chemical compounds on living systems and learn how different drugs can be used to treat illnesses, from cancer to schizophrenia. Taught through lectures, tutorials and practical hands-on sessions in our state-of-the-art Science Centre, you’ll also learn how to analyse pharmacological data, study the techniques behind drug development and screening, and hone the key laboratory skills vital for a career in pharmacology. A degree in pharmacology could lead to a career in drug development, toxicity studies, clinical trials, teaching and research. Other careers could include journalism, graduate entry into medicine, and education.
