I highly recommend this course because it was developed in close collaboration with Astra Zeneca and Glaxo SmithKline, some big leading Pharmaceutical companies. The teaching is great, the lecturers are brilliant and help you as much as they can hence why I came back to study at DMU after my Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Science BSc (Hons).

Deciding to study MSc Pharmaceutical Quality by Design at DMU, was due to its reputation and impact in the field of science. The course is a new, interesting and challenging course because it deals with improving the robustness in dosage form manufacturing processes. It's also a very hands on course in the sense that each student has the opportunity to put what they've learnt in theory into practical use.
The course has had a positive impact on the way I as an individual view the pharmaceutical world. Another positive point on the course is that it's run in collaboration with industries and this also provides firsthand knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry.
Overall, the course has been very interesting as students are treated as professionals in the field by working and sharing their understanding in small groups while learning to be independent.
“This course directly supports the industry’s new and core scientific and risk-based approach in the development and manufacture of medicines. The course was developed in close collaboration with industry to educate, train and develop research initiatives within the area of Quality by Design.”
