This degree aims to:
- develop your skills and knowledge in the main areas of chemistry (organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry) and also enable you to develop a strong awareness of the specialist application of chemistry to pharmaceutical science. This will encompass the physicochemical nature of drugs, the molecular basis of life, practical pharmaceutical techniques, the principles of drug development and formulation and advanced pharmaceutical formulation. In addition if you choose to undertake a Sandwich degree then the course will allow you to acquire technical skills in the workplace and enable you to integrate knowledge gained in the theoretical aspects of the course into the professional environment.
- produce a graduate who is “fit for purpose”, who is ready for employment in the chemistry/pharmaceutical or a related industry, or who can progress to teaching, further study or research aspirations.
