BSc Physiology and Pharmacology (2nd Year Entry Only)
What is Physiology and Pharmacology?
Physiology and Pharmacology study how living organisms work and how chemical compounds, endogenous and exogenous, interact with them to affect their function. They are the basic sciences underlying modern medicine and research aimed at understanding human health and disease.
- After completing the First year of BSc Biomedical Sciences, it is possible to transfer on to the BSc Physiology and Pharmacology specialist degree. Please see our Biomedical Sciences page for further information on year 1 study.
- In the third year our teaching is research-led and students will supplement their studies by reading original research papers and reviews published in the scientific literature. All final year students must undertake a laboratory or library research project in physiology or pharmacology. Please see the course outline below for further information on study in years 2 and 3.
