Course summary

From biology to pharmacology, our extended pharmaceutical sciences degree gives you a broad knowledge of the subject. The course includes an extra year to prepare you for degree-level study. Our extended degree in pharmaceutical sciences explores areas such as biochemistry, biology, physiology, pharmacology, and drug design and delivery. A project and laboratory work will give you opportunities to get hands-on experience. Before studying the same modules offered on our three-year course, you'll complete a foundation year. This will get you up to speed with learning at degree level. Graduate careers include roles in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, research and development, food industries, quality control and manufacturing. The course is a stepping stone to qualified person status with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. You can also apply for membership of the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences. What you should know about this course

  • This four-year course includes the same modules as the three-year course but has a foundation year to make it available with lower requirements
  • If you have the ability but not the qualifications, this programme is your first step to graduation
  • The foundation year will introduce you to the subject and develop your academic writing and computing skills.
  • This course is taught at our Medway Campus in Chatham Maritime, Kent.

Modules

All degree courses are made up of modules – individual units of study on different topics. Some modules are compulsory; others can be chosen from a list of options. Our website has full details of your degree structures, module content, and how each module is assessed. The direct link to this course on our website, can be found at the bottom of this page.

Assessment method

Students are assessed through a combination of course work, exams and practical assessment where relevant. Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
