About this course
The College of Pharmaceutical Sciences is an international BSc programme in drug development, taught fully in English. Students will learn to develop innovative drugs: from the search for new targets in diseases, the development of advanced ways of administering medicines, to the testing of new drugs in patients. To develop a new drug many disciplines come together, such as biomedical- and pharmaceutical sciences, chemistry and biology.
As a drug designe rmore than theoretical knowledge is needed. Students must be skilled in the lab, be able to define a research question and set-up a plan to answer it. What’s more, they must be able to collaborate with a variety of people and present your results. This is why every course contains a group project where they work with fellow students on real-life biomedical problems. In this way, they will learn to apply the theory of pharmaceutical science to creatively solve these problems. Moreover, they will develop skills in ‘problem-shooting’, cooperation and communication.
