The Pharmacology BSc provides a sound understanding of the biological action of drugs and chemicals, the way they work at the molecular, cellular and systems levels and their use in medicines to treat disease. This course is an ideal foundation for careers in the pharmaceutical industry, biomedical research or graduate entry into medicine. This course forms part of the suite of ‘Common Year 1’ course within the School of Bioscience Education. These comprise Anatomy, Developmental & Human Biology; Biochemistry; Biomedical Science; Medical Physiology; Molecular Genetics; Neuroscience; Pharmacology; Pharmacology & Molecular Genetics. Once you have successfully completed year one, you can choose to switch to any other course within this suite. In Year 2, students will focus primarily on Pharmacology. Students can also choose to study abroad during Year 2 or apply to transfer onto a four-year MSci programme with a professional placement year in industry or academia. In the final year, as well as deepening students’ understanding of specialist pharmacological areas, they can also work in one of the state-of-the art research laboratories, investigating a diverse range of exciting topics including regulation of intracellular messengers in single cells, the effects of novel drugs in animal models of disease or the effects of drugs on human subjects.
