MRes Pharmaceutical Analysis - Nottingham

Location: NottinghamCategories: Master CoursesDiscipline: ChemistryOrganisation: Nottingham Trent University

This course covers a diverse range of pharmaceutical analysis research and includes a substantial research lead project.

Entry requirements

UK honours degree (minimum 2.2) or equivalent in chemistry related subject including forensic science, pharmacology and pharmacyApplicants with relevant employment experience or other relevant qualifications will also be consideredInternational students will need IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL 560 or equivalent

Course length

One year full-time, two years part-time


This course enables you to develop and further your knowledge of pharmaceutical and chemical analysis, with a carefully put together range of core modules. You can expand your interests by selecting a pharmaceutical analysis lead research project within one of the diverse range of internationally recognised pharmaceutical analysis research groups (alongside PhD students and post doctoral research fellows).

This is a new course which follows on from our well-established BSc Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry, BSc Chemistry and MChem Chemistry cluster of programmes. Our staff were entered in the Subjects Allied to Heath Care in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise and were ranked as 4* (world-leading). These results put pharmaceutical and analytical science research at NTU at the highest level and will inevitably appeal to potential students interested in furthering their studies in pharmaceutical analysis.

Outstanding Facilities

As well as working and studying under the direction of world leading pharmaceutical and medicinal science staff the students will gain hands on experience of a variety of state-of-the-art instrumentation including:
multi nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry (NMR)mass spectrometrytransmission electron microscopy (TEM)scanning electron microscopy (SEM)confocal microscopysingle crystal X-ray diffractionpowder X-ray diffractiondynamic light scattering techniquesraman spectroscopyinferred spectroscopyultraviolet spectroscopyhigh pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC)size exclusion chromatography (SEC)automated flash chromatographyinductively coupled plasma elemental analysis and a variety of synthetic techniques including working under inert atmospheres.

Links with industry

We have links scientists from AstraZeneca and Vectura deliver some of the module content relevant to their work place. Other guest lecturers also present their research from a variety of other companies and universities.


Core modules

Organic Synthesis and Characterisation of Biologically Active Compounds (20 CP)Drug detection, analysis, and screening (20 CP)Research Methods and Independent Study (20 CP)Research Project (60 CP)


This is a new programme, however, our undergraduate students have gone on to work in a wide variety of job markets including pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, polymer, food and drink, liquid crystals, advance materials engineering, ministry of defence, teaching, finance, sales and further academic studies. This course is also a good basis for going onto a PhD.
