Program description

Pharmacology (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)

Our Pharmacology (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree is the perfect start to your university studies if you’re interested in starting a career in science, but can't meet the entry requirements for a traditional three-year degree in pharmacology. This four-year course has a built-in foundation year designed to give you the key skills in pharmacology you’ll need to advance through the rest of the course.

The course will help you pursue a career in the development and testing of new drugs for illnesses such as schizophrenia and cancer.

On the foundation year of your course you’ll become familiar with the fundamental principles of chemistry, biochemistry, biology and mathematics. You’ll learn about the essential molecules that cells consist of and the roles of cells within the body, as well as logical argument making and how to practice safely within a laboratory environment.
