Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

You’ll develop deep understanding of the complex chemical and biological processes involved in the design and manufacture of drugs and other therapies for treating disease. This course prepares you to help solve problems at the intersection of chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and pharmacology. Practical Chemistry is taught in state of the art teaching laboratories and staff have direct experience of working in Pharmaceutical companies and can therefore challenge you to develop the rigorous and demanding scientific approach that the industry expects.

The goal of medicinal chemistry is to support the search for new drugs to treat conditions such as heart disease, obesity and cancer. You’ll work in well-equipped laboratories and be taught by a team of engaging academics who deliver a course that consistently achieves excellent levels of student satisfaction. In your final year you will undertake a research project and learn how to conduct effective independent research. Keele also offers support to find a summer industrial or research placement in Year 2. You’ll develop essential skills for employment, such as problem solving, presentation and communication. If you take the Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry route your degree will be accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Combined honours Medicinal Chemistry is offered to study alongside other subjects, popular combinations being biochemistry and neuroscience.
