MSc Drug Delivery is a postgraduate programme under the School of Life and Health Sciences, and for me is an excellent progression of my undergraduate programme - Pharmacy. The modules under the course are Chemotherapy and Selective Toxicity, Drug delivery and Targeting, Drug Dosage Form and Design, Drug Discovery, Research Methods; Professional Development and Communication Skills, Principles of Product Analysis, Research Skills and a Research Project.
Most of the first year examinations are conducted after the Christmas vacation in January, however other modes of assessment exist which include Laboratory Practicals, Seminars, Assignments, Report Writing. The timetable is reasonably packed and the work load is manageable, there is sufficient amount of time to enable students keep up with their lectures. By the end of the course, enough practical experience would have been gained as most of the modules have a practical component.
The lecturers on the course are all very friendly and approachable; there is a certain level of care they give to their students that is admirable. Any problems that students have in class, it is easy to have them solved either through direct communication, through Black Board or by simply dropping them an email.
