Why study this degree at UCL?
The research project, perhaps the most exciting aspect of this programme, lasts four months. During this period you will join the research team of one of our world-leading academics, pursuing research that will advance the progress of contemporary medicine design.
Our close links with the UK pharma industry mean we can arrange careers days and other networking opportunities where you will have direct access to potential employers.
We have introduced elements to the programme which will provide evidence of continuing professional development and increase your employability.
These include building a portfolio of practical and analytical skills, and classes and research skills workshops to develop your key skills in communication, calculations and IT.
Graduates of this programme progress to careers in various areas of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, including research, product development and manufacturing, clinical trials and regulatory affairs. Others pursue a PhD in the UK or overseas.
Employability skills are embedded in the Pharmaceutics programme at the University College London (UCL), with emphasis placed on the development of "soft" skills, and a series of bespoke sessions organised on CV writing, undertaking interviews, and networking.
