While courses at other universities may start with a general core science year, here at Bath we teach pharmacology from the outset. You'll investigate the action of new and existing drugs at the whole body and cellular level.
By the time you reach the placement in your 3rd year, you'll already have gained two years of specialist knowledge and practical experience. You'll be able to draw on this when taking your final year units and projects.
At the end of the course, you could go on to work on the development of new treatments for both human and animal diseases. Our students say they get great satisfaction from knowing they are helping improve the lives of patients.
