Why Warwick?
The University of Warwick is a world-leading university, born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration. We’ve built a strong reputation for upholding the highest academic and research standards.

Today, more than 26,000 students thrive in a supportive, welcoming space where everything you need to study, live and have fun is close to hand. Explore what Warwick has to offer, and you’ll develop a skillset that sets you apart, and sets you up to succeed. What that success looks like is up to you.

The course
By branching into medicinal chemistry you will apply your knowledge to the discovery, design and synthesis of new drugs for clinical use. This degree provides a solid foundation in chemistry coupled with specialist knowledge in advanced medicinal chemistry/biochemistry. Specialist modules will explore the process of medicinal drug discovery, starting from the initial concept of a new product, to the discovery stage, clinical trials, scale-up and production. You can explore the biochemistry of these processes, and how this leads to medical breakthroughs. In addition to research-led teaching from top academics in their field, you will benefit from external lectures given by pharmaceutical industry leaders.

The four-year Master’s (MChem) course includes an additional Extended Lab in your third year and one extra module in your fourth year. Your fourth year research project will be based on your specialism, and you can expect to be working on drug discovery of novel antibiotic, anticancer or anti-inflammatory compounds through organic synthesis or natural product isolation. Once you’re here, you can apply to transfer onto a variant of this degree, either with industrial placement or with international placement.

Additional fee information

In line with government policy decisions, Home and EU undergraduate tuition fees for the 2020/21 academic year are £9,250. For students who qualify for government-regulated fees (currently students classed as ‘Home’ or ‘Home/EU’ for fees purposes), the University expects to increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in the second and subsequent years of your course. Fees for Channel Islands students are linked to the Home fee as well as the Office for Students annual funding levels and are therefore subject to change in line with the above statement as well as the annual funding award for the year of study. The University has set the International fees for the period to 2021-22.
