Curriculum

As an MSc student, you will complete four taught modules and an independent research project.

Three of the taught modules are core to the course: Advanced Pharmaceutics; Drug Design; and Research Skills. The latter serves as ideal preparation for your final project.

You can also choose one optional module from: Pharmaceutical Analysis; Advanced Cellular Pharmacology & Physiology; Bioinformatics; and Toxicology.

Advanced Pharmaceutics develops an understanding of advanced drug delivery systems. It includes study of the legislative process needed to turn a new substance into a medication that can be used safely and effectively.

Pharmaceutical Analysis covers the methods used in the detection, extraction, isolation and quantitative/qualitative analysis of drugs and phytochemicals.

Drug Design looks at the process of drug design and the development of drug products from traditional medicine systems.

Both these last two are joint modules with Phyto-pharmaceutical Science. 

For the PG Diploma you would complete the MSc course minus the final project. To gain a PG Certificate you need to complete two modules.
