Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices regulation is now firmly established as a 'science' with an exponential increase in demand for such expertise worldwide. It is a growing field in emerging markets such as China, Far East, South America, Africa and Middle East. As pharmaceutical and devices regulation is becoming increasingly complex in global environments there is an urgent need to train individuals with appropriate skills in such disciplines at an undergraduate level. It is these individuals who will be best positioned to facilitate, manage and maintain the complex regulatory environment of the future, without compromising the quality of patient safety and care. The University of Hertfordshire is perfectly placed to attract and train individuals from not only the UK but from the rest of the world looking to further their careers in the exciting sectors of pharma/devices industry, regulatory and health technology assessment agencies. The career prospects for graduates of this programme is very promising with a high demand globally.
