  • Curriculum

The Master's Degree in Pharmaceutical  Chemistry consists of 90 ECTS credits, distributed across two semesters of 30 credits each plus a third semester of 30 credits intended for the Master Thesis.

The Master's programme is structured across five modules:

Crosscutting Module: this module provides an overview of the entire drug R+D process and knowledge about project management techniques in a company.

Drug Research Module: this module develops the tools needed for new drug research in its different phases-design and the selection and synthesis of candidate molecules, as well as spectroscopic techniques for identification and characterisation.

Drug Production Module: this module provides specific knowledge of the industrial drug production process

Electives Module: this module offers a choice of three elective courses that complement the skills acquired in the previous modules.

Master Thesis Module: in this module students conduct individual research project within a research group, with a tutor from the Master's Degree.

Laboratory-based coursework accounts for almost 50% of the Master's Degree credits.
