MSc programmes

Programme structure

Our programmes have been designed to fit around the schedules of busy working professionals, offering a flexible rate of attendance that makes it easier to balance work commitments with learning.

The suite of Pharmaceutical Medicine programmes consists of 14 modules which can be taken either as standalone modules or in different combinations to lead to postgraduate awards. Completion of each module (worth 15 credits) involves attendance at an intensive four or five-day workshop at one of King's College London's campuses, plus pre and post-course reading, written assignments and a one-hour online MCQ test. 

The modules have been designed to cover the whole drug development process, but routes to two specific MScs have been mapped out in order to cater for the different career opportunities within the specialty (Clinical Pharmacology, Drug Development Science).

Short Courses

Each of the modules within the Pharmaceutical Medicine suite can be taken as a standalone course and is suitable for continuing professional development.
