Pharmaceutical Science

The MSci Pharmaceutical Science degree allows you to combine bachelors and masters-level modules into one integrated package, designed to provide you with extensive career opportunities as a scientist within the pharmaceutical industry. There is a strong emphasis on employability and industry engagement. The first three years have a strong basis in the chemical and biological sciences which underpin the industry, with specialisms in Quality Control (QC), a major area of employment, and formulation science. Year four will allow further scope to study these specialisms, broadening and strengthening your employment prospects and providing a more unique graduate. You will study for a PRINCE2 Foundation qualification in project management, which is valued by employers of pharmaceutical scientists. You will also conduct a major laboratory research project in a current area of pharmaceutical science, working in relation to industry where possible. Many of the higher level modules are delivered by experts in this field including QPs (Qualified Persons) who have extensive training in all aspects of pharmaceutical manufacturing and batch certification. You will also learn from a number of guest lecturers who work as pharmaceutical scientists with companies such as Glaxo Smith Kline and Penn Pharma and others within the South Wales Pharma Cluster.
