Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Sciences

Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology

The pharmaceutical industry in the UK has a greater impact on the UK economy than any other high-tech industry. Employing 73,000 people, of whom around 27,000 are directly involved in research and development (R&D), the pharmaceutical industry offers graduates a chance to play an important role in the development of new medicines with employment opportunities existing at all stages of the drug development process.

Our BSc degree courses in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology or Pharmaceutical Sciences are designed to create the next generation of pharmaceutical scientists, able to work in all stages of the drug development process as part of a multi-disciplinary research team. You’ll learn about drug discovery, formulation, making small molecule medicines and biologics as well as some of the cutting edge research that will feed into the pharmaceutical industry in the future.

Both courses offer the student an opportunity to apply for a placement year as part of a sandwich degree.
