About this course

Developed by a pharmacy team, this degree course provides an understanding of the chemistry and engineering components of pharmaceutical and cosmetic product design and manufacture.

Our research-active academics have experience in the fields of pharmacy, engineering, chemistry, pharmacology and microbiology. Their strong collaborations with the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries mean that this curriculum is continuously reviewed to ensure we’re equipping our students with the advanced skills sought by graduate employers.

In year three you’ll also have the opportunity to choose your own elective modules.
