Program Description:

The aims of this programme are identical to those for the MSc in Drug Chemistry, namely to provide advanced training in modern drug chemistry. You gain: an appreciation of how new drugs are developed, from their conception in the laboratory to their application, testing and subsequent industrial production; an overview of the chemistry pertinent to drug design, as practised in the pharmaceutical industry and in academia; training in topics which constitute the æholy grailÆ of drug design and potential therapies not yet established commercially; a high level of research competence; and experience through training in relevant aspects of laboratory work, including COSHH and safety.

This programme is designed for students whose first language is not English, primarily from overseas. The Drug Chemistry with English MSc is related to the MSc in Drug Chemistry, and draws on that MSc , but is adapted for students whose first language is not English who wish to improve their command of the language as well as pursue all the scientific aspects.
