The postgraduate Masters in Science (MSc) programme is taught as either a classic one-year programme or delivered through blended learning on a two-year part-time basis.

The MSc degree teaches how fundamental science is applied to the discovery and development of medicines. The programme was designed and conceived by industry experts in drug discovery and will be delivered and assessed by experts from both industry and the university. This advanced-level academic qualification will provide expert preparation for those who wish to pursue and/or further a career in drug discovery, or wish to proceed to a higher degree (Ph.D.).

Two factors underpinned the development of this programme: (1) Graduates in pharmacology and related biology degrees require an understanding of how fundamental science learned at university is linked to the design and development of modern medicines. (2) With increasing specialization of pharmaceutical research into zones of expertise, it is difficult for new graduates to gain a full understanding how their work and data fits into the ‘drug discovery process’....
