Formulation Science

The programme will allow you to understand the principles of making finished products from a blend of different individual ingredients. Drawing on current examples from the pharmaceutical industry, and using the industrial experience of academic staff, you will also apply these principles to industrially relevant problems in other areas of formulation science, such as consumer products and cosmetics.

Entry requirements

MSc: A BSc honours degree normally at 2.1 or above, or equivalent in chemistry, biology, biochemistry, pharmacy or pharmaceutical science or substantial experience. Students educated in a language other than English should have an IELTS score of 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each skill) or equivalent. Alternatively, students can enter via the University of Greenwich International Pre-Masters' Programme.

Course modules

Compulsory modules: Colloids and structured materials in formulations; formulation of consumer goods, cosmetics and coatings; English language support (for postgraduate students in the school of science); analytical methods and QA/QC principles; project formulation science; modern pharmaceutical technologies and process engineering.

Assessment methods

Taught courses are assessed by a wide array of techniques from the traditional (such as examinations, coursework assessments and laboratory work) to the innovative: students are expected to produce a portfolio of research skills upon completion of their degree. Case studies reports, oral presentations, group assignments with accompanying discussions will also be used to assess creativity, collaboration and communication skills. There is a laboratory-based project which will be assessed on practical ability and a final written thesis.
