  • Through one of our three specialist pharmacy MSc courses you’ll gain a thorough understanding and awareness of your chosen area of pharmacy, the research methods required to complete a final supervised research project and an overview of the drug discovery process.

    These courses are primarily designed to prepare you for an academic or industrial career in the relevant area. You may be a scientist already working within the pharmaceutical industry or a recent science graduate.

    You will undertake a variety of compulsory modules and a research project. This project will last approximately four months and you will work under the supervision of recognised experts in their field. The project allows you to undertake a detailed investigation and develop practical expertise in a specialist pharmaceutical sciences area. The University also has strong links with numerous pharmaceutical companies - there may be the opportunity to undertake your project in collaboration with one of these companies.

    MSc Pharmaceutical Sciences: You will gain the skills and knowledge required as a pharmaceutical scientist - the ability to provide effective pharmaceutical formulation strategies for current and future drug therapies and medicinal products.

    MSc Drug Delivery: You will gain an overview of the drug development process from concept to market, gaining hands-on experience of pharmaceutical formulation and drug delivery. 

    MSc Pharmacokinetics: Pharmacokinetics is a key aspect of drug safety and investigates the fate of a drug in the body, and how the substance is absorbed, distributed, metabolised and eliminated. Develop your skill and knowledge in the application of pharmacokinetics to the design and optimisation of new therapeutics. This course has been developed with an emphasis on describing mechanistic approaches to assessing and predicting the pharmacokinetics of drugs throughout the drug development process. You will encounter a broad range of experiences in the application of pharmacokinetics from early discovery and development, through to market authorisation and clinical applications.

    Discover more about the courses in this interview with one of the course directors, Prof Afzal Mohammed.

    All students studying one of our three pharmacy MSc courses will take the following core modules:

    • Research Methods 1:  Professional Development: The professional skills taught in this module will equip you with general and transferable talents with broad application both within and outside of academia.
    • Research Methods 2: Communication Skills:  This module includes critical analysis of published work, reviewing papers, writing abstracts, writing research papers, preparing poster presentations and oral presentation skills.
    • Research Project:  The supervised research project will last for four months and be at the level expected for the first year of PhD studies.
    • Drug Discovery:  An overview of the drug discovery process from target to market.
    Depending upon the course you chose, you will also undertake the following modules: 

    • MSc Pharmaceutical Sciences

    • Chemotherapy & Selective Toxicity: Gain insight and understanding into the mechanisms of action of antibiotics used to control infectious diseases and of agents used in the treatment and control of cancer.
    • Drug Dosage Form & Design: Become equipped with the ability to apply the biopharmaceutical, pharmacokinetic and physiochemical principles important in the design and formulation of drug delivery systems.
    • Principles of Product Analysis and Validation: Assess the physico-chemical parameters using a range of tools and consider the implications of these properties at all stages of formulation, development, regulation and application of the medicine.
    • Pharmacology: Develop your understanding of receptor pharmacology and pharmacological techniques and concepts.

    • MSc Drug Delivery

    • Chemotherapy & Selective Toxicity: Gain insight and understanding into the mechanisms of action of antibiotics used to control infectious diseases and of agents used in the treatment and control of cancer.
    • Drug Dosage Form & Design: Become equipped with the ability to apply the biopharmaceutical, pharmacokinetic and physiochemical principles important in the design and formulation of drug delivery systems.
    • Principles of Product Analysis and Validation: Assess the physico-chemical parameters using a range of tools and consider the implications of these properties at all stages of formulation, development, regulation and application of the medicine.
    • Drug Delivery and Targeting: The latest advances in drug delivery and targeting will be addressed within this module. The aim is to develop the concept of drug targeting with drug carriers and provide an in depth appreciation of the strategies available and utilised for a particular drug and biological barrier.
