Our emphasis is on developing professional attitudes together with a broad appreciation of different healthcare roles.
Students are actively supported by our academic staff, many of whom are leading professionals in the fields of pharmaceutics and pharmaceutical chemistry. Several are practising pharmacists, others have first-hand experience of teaching hospital and community pharmacy.
Pharmaceutical scientists play a vital role in the development of new medicines, from discovery chemistry, through to formulation development, manufacturing and clinical testing, and post marketing pharmacovigilance. We have developed our Pharmaceutical Science programme in collaboration with a range of local and national companies, from small biotech companies to multinational pharmaceutical giants.
