A new undergraduate course is launched at the University of Nottingham to meet the current and future needs of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors.
The MSci Pharmaceutical Sciences with a Year in Industry programme will be delivered by one of the world’s most respected Schools of Pharmacy. The course includes a year working in the pharmaceutical, biotech or healthcare industry to help students hit the ground running in the global workplace from the day they graduate.
The course is designed together with experts from industry to prepare graduates for careers in drug discovery, medicines design and development. In addition to a strong foundation in the chemical and biological sciences, students will also learn about patients, business skills, and medicines regulation.
Professor Clive Roberts, Head of the School of Pharmacy, The University of Nottingham, said “This is an exciting and innovative course designed specifically to produce the next-generation of pharmaceutical scientists to lead research and industry in the development of new medicines.”
