    Course Summary

    The University of St Andrews’ Medicinal Chemistry (Honours) BSc program is a 4 year course of study delivered by St Andrews’ School of Chemistry. It is designed to give you a broad awareness of Medicinal Chemistry as well as a deep knowledge of the latest advances in this exciting, rapidly changing field.

    You’ll learn chemistry generally and in a biological context, and gain a great deal of practical experience at the same time. You will also receive the kind of scientific training and intellectual accomplishment that could easily take you to higher level learning or work in a non-chemistry-based field, or could foster your success in the chemical or biomedical industries.

    This degree program is based on the accumulation of credits, gained by studying both required and elective modules. You will have the opportunity to direct your own development, specialising in subjects like Molecular Recognition, Biosynthesis of Natural Products, Homogenous Catalysis, Physical Organic Chemistry, and many more.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    St Andrews’ Medicinal Chemistry BSc is a four year program for most students.

    Year 1:

    You will begin by studying a core curriculum relevant to all of the chemistry programs at St Andrews, including Organic and Biological Chemistry, Inorganic and Physical Chemistry and more. In addition, you will study at least one non-chemistry subject of your choice.

     

    Year 2:

    In addition to rounding out your core curriculum in biology with classes in Organic, Physical and Inorganic Chemistry, you will continue on with your additional subject throughout year 2.

    Year 3:

    Year 3 will see you move away from broad, generalist modules to highly specialised work that will prepare you for your Honours degree.

    Year 4:

    In your last year, you will have access to a range of group-specialised modules led by academics who are leaders in their fields. You will also complete a research project which involves problem solving, experimental design and the gathering and interpretation of data.

    Year 5 (optional)

    You will also have the option of making this a Masters of Chemistry degree program by staying for a final 5th year.

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of St Andrews is committed to modern teaching techniques, and offers a research-led curriculum. Your taught classes will involve both large-scale lectures and smaller participatory laboratory sessions in groups of around 20. These will be supplemented by tutorials delivered to classes of 5-10. You will also do a great deal of individual research, especially during your 3rd (honours) year.
