The MSc Pharmacology programme will give you a thorough understanding of the science of drugs and their effects on the human body.



Pharmacology influences our everyday lives. Pills, potions, creams, inhalers and injections contain drugs that can prevent pain, indigestion, bacterial and viral infection, ease your breathing in asthma, inhibit and destroy cancer cells, and inhibit blood clots that cause strokes and heart attacks.
This Masters programme provides specialist training in the field of pharmacology enabling you to develop a comprehensive scientific understanding.
You will gain an understanding of current techniques, develop laboratory ‘bench’ skills, as well as strong communication skills and the ability to think independently, in preparation for employment or PhD studies.
A variety of learning and teaching methods such as lectures, seminars, practical laboratory classes and a laboratory-based research project are used.
