WHAT WILL I LEARN?
The first year lays the foundation for the study of Medical and Pharmacological Sciences. You will develop key study and research skills through topics such as physiology, microbiology, cell biology, molecular biology and pharmacology.
In the second year you will further develop your study skills and research expertise and will begin to specialise in pharmacology and related areas such as physiology, biochemistry, immunology and genetics.
The final year of your course gives you the opportunity to carry out an independent research project in an area of pharmacology as well as in depth study of advanced pharmacology and drug development, cancer biology, chemotherapy and genetics.
Your course will be based on a series of lectures, with associated seminars, workshops, practical classes and personal tutorials - as well as problem based learning.
An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: formal examinations 25%; coursework, tests, essays 45%; practical or project work 20%; group work etc.5%; presentations, posters etc.5%.
