If you would like to gain a recognised qualification that will further your career in the pharmaceutical industry or public services, or would like to gain an excellent foundation for a further research degree, this course is ideal. You will gain a strong background in the theory of analytical techniques used in pharmacy and how to apply them to complex problems in an industrially relevant context.

The MSc course provides exemption from Part A of the Mastership in Chemical Analysis, which is the statutory qualification for a public analyst. If you are unable to commit to the full masters programme, intermediate qualifications (PgCert/PgDip) are available.

What will you study?

You will gain the key skills required in the specialised area of pharmaceutical analysis, including good measurement and scientific practice, evaluation interpretation of data, and other professional and organisational skills. In addition to studying core analytical techniques and their applications in the pharmaceutical industry, you will also be introduced to various pharmaceutical technologies, for example, formulations and topics such as clinical pharmacokinetics.

To put your studies into context, you will be offered a placement within industry or the University's laboratories where you will carry out your independent research project. You may be placed within a pharmaceutical company, a forensic laboratory, analytical consultancy, hospital laboratory or research lab. There is also scope to study and explore recent trends in pharmaceutical analysis and the latest analytical techniques.
