Biological chemistry and drug discovery brings together chemistry, pharmacology, and biology. It uses techniques from molecular and chemical biology to find new treatments for diseases.
Our Drug Discovery Unit brings together lab-focused academic research and industry-scale drug development to create new drugs to fight infections and other diseases.
We are also ranked in the top 50 for pharmacy and pharmacology in the QS World University Rankings 2022.
Our course curriculum is shaped by the work of our world-leading researchers to make sure you’re learning the latest advances. This will also help you gain an understanding of the fundamentals of the field.
Throughout your degree, you can pick modules that appeal most to you, highlighting to employers were your interests lie.
Your first two years of study will explore core concepts such as:
- cell biology
- biological organisation
- molecular mechanisms and processes
You will develop your practical skills such as laboratory skills, data analysis, and experiment design. This will prepare you for designing and carrying out projects later in your course.
You’ll then focus on more detailed aspects of biological chemistry and drug discovery at Levels 3 and 4. You will also take part in a semester long research project based around one chosen area of the current world-class research in Life Sciences.
Tuition fees for International students will increase by no more than 5% per year for the length of your course.
Tuition fees for Scottish students is €2,100 and for the Rest of UK is €10,700.
