We’ve made this an up-to-date yet still classical pharmacology course, and one which employers will recognise for the quality of the graduates it delivers.

As with our other bioscience degrees, the first year provides a solid, general background in biochemistry, human anatomy, cell biology and genetics. This uniform approach means you can still transfer to another degree course at the start of your second year should you wish.

Second-year students learn the fundamental pharmacological concepts, drug discovery and development as well as advanced biochemistry and disease processes. In your third year, you’ll examine pharmacological treatment for diseases of the nervous system and other organ systems as well as toxicology.

One of the strengths of BSc Pharmacology at the University of East London is the emphasis we place on emerging therapeutic strategies and research opportunities. It means you can undertake a fascinating and significant lab-based research project in your final year.
