Pharmacology is the science of medicines and other drugs, and is therefore essential to all medical disciplines and the treatment of disease. This course will teach you how drugs work in the body, and how they are used to treat disease. You’ll gain a broad understanding of the biomedical science disciplines, while gaining specialised knowledge on how drugs are discovered and developed for human use, and how they can sometimes have unwanted effects. You’ll also develop strong practical skills, with laboratory and experimental design modules being an integral part of your degree. Our tutorial and small group work system is designed to develop essential transferable skills, such as written and oral communication, problem solving and team working skills, alongside pharmacological knowledge. Our integrated Masters (MBiol) offers you an additional year of specialist research training. You’ll undertake an extended research project and study advanced research topics.
