  • A recent example is ‘The Analyst’. This involves groups of students using their skills to evaluate a scientific product, develop technical and customer focused material and give presentations to demonstrate how the product could be marketed. This is similar to BBC TV’s The Apprentice, and is delivered in partnership with a global scientific supplier.
  • Pharmacy, chemistry and materials science are central to research at the University of Brighton. 80 per cent of our health-science related research was judged to be of international standing in the government's 2008 UK Research Assessment Exercise. (Not on slide as covered by HoS presentation).
  • Chemistry BSc(Hons)/MChem 2014

    1. 1. Six reasons to study chemistry at the University of Brighton Chemistry BSc(Hons)/MChem Pharmaceutical and Chemical Sciences BSc(Hons)
