Course overview: Pharmaceutical science takes a multidisciplinary approach to studying medicines. This course gives you a strong base in chemistry, biochemistry and biological science, preparing you for work in the pharmaceutical industry. You can complete an optional work placement year. You develop an understanding of the physicochemical and biological principles that underpin the design, function, synthesis, analysis and delivery of pharmaceutical substances. You also develop the technical, practical and professional skills that employers value, and have access to state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment for laboratory training. You study at Teesside University’s main Middlesbrough campus, and have the opportunity to gain valuable experience at the new National Horizons Centre at the University’s Darlington campus which is home to a range of state-of-the-art facilities. This £22m purpose-built biosciences research, education and training facility is a focal point for the growing regional biosciences community. After the course: The UK is home to some of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies and continues to develop best-selling prescription drugs. Pharmaceutical scientists work in areas such as research, product development, quality assurance and analytical science, marketing and sales within the pharmaceutical and chemical industries and elsewhere. Many pharmaceutical scientists work in laboratories, hospitals and educational establishments. As well as working directly within the industry, pharmaceutical science graduates are well qualified for careers in teaching, forensic science, environmental protection, and health and safety assurance.
