Medicinal and Biological Chemistry at University of Nottingham - UCAS

Course summary

Course overview Chemistry plays an important role in our society. It is central to developing drugs, creating vaccines and treating illnesses. You will explore the interplay between chemistry and biology to develop an understanding of human disease and drug design. The course is built on core chemistry but also includes modules in physiology and pharmacology. In these modules, you’ll learn about drug delivery, metabolism and targeting, drug structures and toxicities and cancer agents. The University of Nottingham is the second-most targeted university in the UK by leading employers. (High Fliers' Graduate Market in 2022). A degree in chemistry will prepare you for a wide range of careers. You’ll develop the necessary academic and practical skills for a career in industry, whether that be in pharmaceutical, petrochemical, cosmetics or others. You’ll also develop your written and oral communication skills, and gain transferable skills such as problem-solving, numeracy and data analysis. These are desired by other industries including finance, media, and management.

Modules

In the first year, you will take introductory modules in chemistry, physiology and pharmacology, including practical training. If you do not have A level mathematics (or equivalent) then you will take the Mathematical Toolkit module to prepare you for this aspect of the chemistry course. In your second year you will cover topics in physical, inorganic and organic chemistry in more depth. You'll also study complimentary courses in spectroscopy, biological chemistry and pharmacology. This includes a case study on the development of a recent drug. In year three you will study advanced modules in chemistry and drug discovery. You will apply the theoretical, computational and experimental techniques you have learned to an area of your choice with a final research project.
