Pharmacology, B.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 36 months
    Duration
University rank #49 (QS) Bristol, United Kingdom
For the first two years of the Pharmacology programme from University of Bristol, you will study a number of core units run by the School of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience and choose others from a wide selection, such as biochemistry, molecular genetics, infection and immunity, cellular and molecular medicine and mammalian physiology. 

About

Pharmacology is the study of the action of drugs in the widest possible sense; it encompasses many types of chemicals that affect the functioning of the body rather than just medicines.

Final-year units emphasise the molecular mechanisms of drug action and take you to the forefront of current research.

In your final year of the Pharmacology programme from University of Bristol, formal lectures are replaced by seminars and tutorials and a fully-integrated programme of activities develops your transferable personal and professional skills.

We use a wide variety of teaching approaches, which are both traditional (including lectures, practical work and tutorials) and innovative; for example our practical teaching is currently enhanced by self-directed learning using computer-assisted packages, such as eBiolabs.
