Pharmacology is the study of drugs and how they affect the human body and other living systems. If you love performing experiments in a lab and want to work in an industry that improves the lives of millions of people, this BSc (Hons) Pharmacology degree is for you.
You'll deepen your chemistry and biology knowledge as you study how drugs – such as painkillers, antibiotics and even caffeine – alter the body's systems.
You'll investigate why people's bodies respond differently to the same drugs and look at how new medicines are developed, tested and launched.
You'll have the opportunity to further enhance your career prospects and workplace skills by applying to do a sandwich year in industry. An optional module allows you to study the business side of the pharmacology industry.
When you graduate, you'll be set for a career or further study in areas such as new drug development, medical writing, regulatory affairs and pharmaceutical marketing.
