Course Information

Interested in learning all about how drugs work to fight diseases? Want to play your part in discovering new treatments in a fast-paced industry responding to a rapidly changing world? Our Pharmacology BSc(Hons) course offers an advanced programme of learning designed to give you the solid grounding you need to set off on your chosen career path, whether it’s in pharmaceutical industries, the health sector or research.

  • This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology.
  • You’ll be guided by doctoral-level teaching staff on a modular course designed to help you follow your interests and tailor your degree to suit your career aspirations. Alongside building your technical and scientific knowledge, you’ll have the opportunity to develop your deductive, analytical and communication skills – all vital when you venture out into the real world.
  • On top of that, there’s the chance to gain hands-on experience in our modern biological sciences labs using the kind of instrumentation you’ll find in industry. And if you want to get even more insight and up-to-the-minute experience, you can opt to do a work placement for the duration of your third year.
  • During the course, we’ll be looking at all aspects of pharmacology including neurodegenerative diseases and other conditions affecting ageing populations, as well as infectious diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and HIV-AIDS. You’ll also have the chance to study topics around public health and increase your understanding of emerging pathogens and those that are becoming resistant to antibiotics. In short, you should graduate with the knowledge and practical skills to kick-start a fulfilling career.
  • As a student on this course you’ll be able to apply for undergraduate membership of the Biochemical Society and The Physiological Society (UK). You’ll also be eligible for student affiliate membership of the Royal Society of Biology and upon successful graduation be eligible to apply for one year associate membership, this can help open up networks at a crucial time when applying for jobs.
