**More about this course**
On this unique multi-discipline degree you'll study the science behind the design and development of new medications. By focusing on the study of lead compounds and the different criteria that affect a drug's action in the body, you'll also learn how side effects can be minimised and avoided through targeted treatment.
Created especially for students without standard qualifications, this four-year extended degree incorporates a one-year foundation year (Year 0), designed to equip you with all the background information and academic knowledge you need to progress on to our Pharmaceutical Studies BSc (Hons) course.
For the remainder of the degree, you'll study a diverse range of topics, from drug design to organic chemistry. Taught by experienced lecturers and experts in the field, you'll also undertake practical, hands-on experiments in our cutting-edge Science Centre, helping you gain the knowledge and lab skills you need for a rewarding career in pharmaceutical science. This degree will also give you the qualifications you need to enter a range of other fields or extend your knowledge through to a PhD.
You'll be assessed through progress tests, coursework, online tests, practical reports and presentations.
