About this course

On this flexible, three-year degree you’ll learn how chemistry and medicinal sciences combine to help us treat disease.

You’ll study every aspect of the drug development cycle, including:

  • the design of molecules with the potential to treat disease
  • Understanding and predicting how medicines will interact with the body
  • testing the effectiveness and safety of new treatments;

Your chemistry practical work will take place in recently refurbished, modern laboratories using high-tech equipment.

For the biological sciences aspects of your degree, you’ll use purpose-built facilities in the Life Sciences Building, which have benefited from a recent £50m investment.

You’ll learn from staff who are changing the world through research, including designing new cancer drugs and developing synthetic DNA for use in COVID-19 testing.

We regularly review our courses to ensure and improve quality. This course may be revised as a result of this. Any revision will be balanced against the requirement that the student should receive the educational service expected. Find out why, when, and how we might make changes.

Our courses are regulated in England by the Office for Students (OfS).
