The pharmaceutical sciences are a vast range of disciplines including drug discovery, drug design and drug delivery. All of which are crucial to the development and success of new drug products. Drug delivery focuses on the design of dosage forms that deliver the drug to the patient. Different dosage forms include tablets, injections and patches. The aim of drug delivery is to ensure the drug arrives at the correct time and concentration within the patient.
Our MSc Drug Delivery course has been designed to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the drug development process from concept to market, including hands-on experience of pharmaceutical formulation and drug delivery. Throughout you’ll gain a thorough understanding of this specialist pharmaceutical sciences area, the research methods required to complete a final research project and an overview of the drug discovery process.
We provide modules that will also build your research and critical thinking skills for application both within and outside of academia. Our broad range of topics such as drug discovery, drug dosage form and design and chemotherapy and selective toxicity will ensure you possess the necessary skill set for a pharmaceutical scientist. In addition to this subject specific knowledge, you will also develop highly desirable transferable skills in presenting, team working, report writing, critical analysis, negotiating and data analysis.
Upon completion of the course, you’ll be prepared for multiple careers in the pharmaceutical industry such as analytical sciences, formulation development, project management, regulatory affairs, scientific writing and further studies.
