•Learn how the fundamentals of biology and chemistry are applied to medical science •Gain insight into how new drugs are designed •Work in state-of-the art facilities and carry out challenging independent research This four-year version of the Biological and Medicinal Chemistry degree includes a year studying abroad, between the second and final years. In this third year you study in a university with which we have established links, for example in North America or Australia, and credit for this academic work counts towards your degree at Exeter. The degree provides training in both biological sciences and chemistry and shows how this multidisciplinary area relates to aspects of medicine and drug design. The first year provides an excellent grounding in all three branches of chemistry – inorganic, organic and physical. Organic chemistry remains a key element in subsequent years of the programme, with an emphasis being the clear link between chemistry and biological sciences. The level and breadth of coverage of organic chemistry is comparable with that normally encountered in a Single Honours BSc Chemistry programme. The second and final years provide you with a wide range of module choice allowing further specialisation in chemistry, forensic science, cell biology, molecular biology and genomics, and biotechnology, alongside core topics including pharmacology, medicinal chemistry and drug design. This degree leads to many career opportunities in pharmaceutical, chemical, biotechnological and other industries as well as medically-related employment and further study.
