Fascinated by the science that underpins drug discovery and development? Join our full-time Pharmaceutical Science degree course and develop essential laboratory skills in our Chelmsford SuperLabs. Prepare for a career in pharmaceutical companies, clinical research, public health or the food and cosmetic industries.
You’ll learn how the human body functions, the impact that disease has on the body, and how normal function can be restored through drug therapy. You’ll explore the sciences that underpin drug discovery and development – and the important role of systematic, conceptual and analytical thinking. Add to this an understanding of quality assurance assessments and regulatory principles associated with drug discovery, development and manufacturing.
We also focus on skills that are prized not just in the pharmaceutical industry but across the public and private sectors. You’ll acquire essential laboratory skills and research techniques, as well as develop your inter and intra professional skills. You’ll also learn how to identify and solve problems, and develop your communication, management and leadership skills.
We work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need. They help us review what we teach and how we teach it – ultimately ensuring that a wide range of job opportunities are available to you when you graduate. These include areas of the pharmaceutical industry such as research, quality assurance, regulatory affairs and marketing and sales.

Where you’ll study
The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
