Pharmaceutical Science - P6005
Brought to you by the world #2 for Pharmacy and Pharmacology, the new Master of Pharmaceutical Science will equip students with the knowledge and skills that they need for a career in the pharmaceutical sector, as well as in related industries such as cosmetics and food manufacturing.
The MPharmSci offers an alternative qualification to a PhD, the traditional postgraduate pathway to employment in the sector. Where a PhD focuses on the discovery of new knowledge and the formal training to be a scientist, the MPharmSci offers students a breadth of expertise, plus industry knowledge and experience.
The degree has been designed in consultation with major employers to ensure that the course content aligns with areas in the sector where there are skills gaps, and will culminate in an extended industrial or research placement, offering students valuable real-world experience.
The degree is open to students who already have a Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science and want to gain a competitive edge in the employment market. It is also open to students with a degree in general science, biomedicine or engineering who wish to specialise in pharmaceutical science.
