Pharmacology BSc Welcome Pack

Welcome to Pharmacology BSc 2022.

I am delighted to welcome you to the University of Northampton and to the study of Pharmacology. This is an exciting time to join us and to be the very first group of students on this new degree!

In your first week with us, you will meet your personal tutor and get to know others on your course, as well as exploring our Waterside Campus and all the opportunities university life has to offer. You will begin your studies with a thorough grounding in the foundations of chemistry and the key life sciences disciplines of biochemistry, physiology, genetics, microbiology and immunology.

You will be taught alongside students from other Life Sciences degrees such as Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, and Biomedical Science and will have approximately 12 hours of timetabled teaching per week. This will be a combination of tutorials, workshops, lectures, practical classes and online teaching sessions which are designed to give you the most appropriate learning experience and include plenty of hands-on activities to enhance your understanding.

Each student will be provided with a safety induction and personal laboratory kit including lab coat, safety glasses and lab notebook to make sure you will be ready for your lab sessions. Outside of timetabled sessions, you can make use of our extensive library, virtual learning environment and online resources to prepare for your tutorials and work on your assessments.

I am really looking forward to working with you, see you in September!

Your Programme Leader
