Clinical pharmacology is the study of all aspects of drugs as they relate to humans. Our BSc in clinical pharmacology is designed to provide you with a broad understanding of how drugs are developed, from discovery of molecules to treatment of patients. It will equip you with the knowledge and skills to enter a career in the life sciences, working in industry, academia or healthcare particularly in the development of new medicines.
This course has been designed with advice from a wide range of potential employers including the pharmaceutical industry, contract research organisations, universities and healthcare. It is focussed on developing skills required by these employers, as well as on acquiring knowledge. At the end of your studies you will be well equipped to apply for a job with these or other employers or go on to further study in scientific research or healthcare.
Our curriculum offers the opportunity to see what work is like in industry and healthcare through short placements and through hearing about the experiences of visiting lectures. Students may opt to do an additional professional training year working with an employer to build their skills between years 2 and 3 of the course. Students graduate with a BSc (Hons) Clinical Pharmacology.
