About Pharmaceuticals at Bournemouth University

Please note: This course is not recruiting for September 2020.

Delivered at Wiltshire College and University Centre's Salisbury campus, this course will develop your knowledge of the physio-chemical and biological principles necessary to understand the sourcing, preparation, analysis and properties of medicinal agents.  This will include the design, delivery, mode of action, therapeutic application and clinical usage of medicines. 

The course will give you sufficient vocational skills and knowledge to be attractive to employers at the end of the two years study, although an additional third year onto a top-up course to achieve a full BSc degree would place all the knowledge gained and skills developed to good use in the field.

Year one lays the foundation for units in year two and potentially year three.  The number of students in any one year will be relatively small so all students will have maximum support from each module and personal tutor. You will need to research current topics in your area of study and a specific module has been designed in the first year to help you understand how best to achieve this.

There is no work placement requirement but in your second year, a Work Related Project may require you to liaise with a local company or organisation, applying your knowledge gained to a real-world issue linked to your area of interest within the programme.

Overall, the course is intended to produce students who are ‘fit for work’ with the theoretical and practical knowledge which would benefit any employer in the pharmaceutical science field.

Applicants who do not have sufficient experience or formal qualifications may be eligible to attend the Foundation Year of their chosen Foundation Degree provided they meet the minimum entry
