If you're interested in a career in the fascinating and challenging world of drug design, this is the course that will take you there.

This is a part-time course, starting in September or January, with flexibility in the number of taught modules taken in each trimester.

We may also consider lesser qualifications if you have sufficient work experience in the pharmaceutical or healthcare industries.
