Program Overview

Drawing on the School of Life Sciences’ established research strengths in this area, our BSc (Hons) course gives you the knowledge and skills in biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences to be a professional scientist, able to work in areas where there are significant industry skills gaps.

On this course, you develop a broad range of skills in pharmacology and health sciences, studying areas such as chemistry; microbiology; biochemistry; anatomy and physiology; cell biology; and pharmaceutical sciences.

From this firm foundation, in your second and third years, your studies develop to include subjects such as immunology; pharmacogenetics; translational medicine; toxicology; and drug dispensing and delivery.

Practical laboratory work enables you to apply and develop your skills, while your final-year independent project and dissertation allow you to research and investigate a specific subject in detail.
