The BSc Pharmaceutical Science course will provide you with a range of progressive, coherent and challenging learning opportunities informed by research, scholarly activity and appropriate development of skills. Pharmaceutical Science is a relatively new discipline and is concerned with fostering a multi-disciplinary approach towards the study of exciting new developments in the chemical, biological and biomedical science areas focusing upon the biochemistry, pharmacology, design, methods of analysis and delivery of pharmaceutical substances. You will also be supported in the development of intellectual and key interpersonal skills as well as subject knowledge that will equip you for life-long learning and employability.
The foundation year (Level 3 modules) will develop your study and analytical skills in preparation for your future study in science and technology and develop an understanding of the knowledge which underpins the pharmaceutical arena.
The course aims to produce high quality pharmaceutical science graduates with the generic, subject-specific and transferable knowledge and skills suited to a career in the pharmaceutical industry or other related laboratory-based scientific disciplines. You will have the opportunity to study the Wolverhampton Employability Award up to gold level. You will also be supported in seeking placement opportunities either as a sandwich year or over the summer vacation.
