Our BSc Pharmacology and Physiology course enables you to combine the study of the most critical aspects of the two disciplines. The pharmacology component of the course looks at drug actions on living systems - where they act, what they do, how they are metabolised, and how they exert toxic effects. Physiology is the study of function in living systems. This could be in plants and animals but, at Manchester, we concentrate on the function of humans and other mammals. In the final year, your advisor will help to ensure that your course of study involves a balance between both subjects. **Special Features** **Industrial experience** You can extend your degree by a year to gain a year of industrial/professional experience and enhance your CV. **Foundation year available** You can prepare for the full degree course if you do not have the appropriate qualifications for direct entry by undertaking our foundation course first. **Flexibility to transfer between courses** You can transfer between most of our biological sciences degree courses at the end of your first year or, in some cases, later.
