Our BSc Pharmacology with a Modern Language course will enable you to develop your language skills while studying drug actions on living systems - where they act, what they do, how they are metabolised, and how they exert toxic effects.
Understanding all of this requires studying drug actions at levels ranging from the single molecule to the whole organism.
As a result, our course includes aspects of molecular biology, chemistry, physiology and neuroscience, and you will examine both the actions of current drugs and the development of new drugs throughout the course.
We offer French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin for the language component of the course, which includes a year abroad on a research placement.
Our course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology , which recognises academic excellence in the biosciences and highlights degrees that educate the research and development leaders and innovators of the future.
**Connect with other languages students**
Learn alongside other students taking a variety of language degrees at the University, giving you the opportunity to practice your skills with your fellow students and make new friends.
Placements are available at 25 universities throughout Europe and in China and Japan.
**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 away from this course to most of our biological sciences degree courses at the end of your first year or, in some cases, later. You can only transfer onto it if you have completed the required language units in Year 1.
