Course Introduction

Pharmaceutical Chemistry provides the type of training required to work in the pharmaceutical industry in the discovery and development of new medicines. The emphasis is on synthetic organic chemistry, while also providing a good general foundation in physical and inorganic chemistry. In addition, you will receive insights into pharmacology, biochemistry and cancer chemotherapy. The four'year MSci is the standard qualification for those wishing to follow a professional career as a research chemist, while the three'year programme gives an excellent grounding in pharmaceutical chemistry, suitable for those who wish to pursue other careers in the industry or allied areas. During the final year of the MSci, you will conduct an extended original research project. These programmes have been recognised by the Royal Society of Chemistry and lead to Associate Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry status.
