Pharmacology

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $12,700.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Our passion for pharmacology and our reputation for excellence stretches back to the distant days when the University of East London was called the West Ham Technical Institute.


After half a century of studying drugs and how their application affects the prevention and treatment of disease, we’re now celebrating the landmark 50th anniversary of our pharmacology teaching and research at UEL.

Not only are we sure we’ve never been better, but we think our future’s never been more exciting.

A new, revamped course will equip you for a rewarding future in what our prize-winning, internationally recognised lecturers believe is the most fascinating of the biosciences.

We’ll give you a thorough introduction to every area of pharmacology through our diverse and flexible approach. You’ll also leave with a thorough understanding of areas such as molecular biology, physiology, microbiology, genetics and toxicology.

You’ll be in the lab learning pharmacological techniques that will back up your lectures and demonstrate how medicines work.

You’ll be involved in groundbreaking research projects and have access to excellent work opportunities. This could be in the form of an optional placement year or a shorter summer placement at a major organisation such as the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) or in our own labs working with our internationally recognised researchers.

Don't just take our work for it, take a look at our video of some of our former students here

Also, if you want to find out more about Pharmacology, have a look at the British Pharmacological Society videos here.

What you'll learn

We’ve made this an up-to-date yet still classical pharmacology course, and one which employers will recognise for the quality of the graduates it delivers.

 

As with our other bioscience degrees, the first year provides a solid, general background in biochemistry, human anatomy, cell biology and genetics. This uniform approach means you can still transfer to another degree course at the start of your second year should you wish.

 

Second-year students learn the fundamental pharmacological concepts, drug discovery and development as well as advanced biochemistry and disease processes. In your third year, you’ll examine pharmacological treatment for diseases of the nervous system and other organ systems as well as toxicology.

One of the strengths of BSc Pharmacology at the University of East London is the emphasis we place on emerging therapeutic strategies and research opportunities. It means you can undertake a fascinating and significant lab-based research project in your final year.

How you'll be assessed

 

We’ll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible.


In your third year, you’ll either take five core modules or undertake a work placement. We’ll assess you accordingly. 
 

How you'll learn

Our course is demanding but enjoyment is always at its heart. “We’ve massively improved and increased our labs and brought in innovative teaching and problem-based learning,” says Dr Michael Seed, a Reader in Pharmacology.

“Our students sent us a card last year saying ‘thank-you so much for looking after us and making pharmacology so much fun’. The whole idea is fun!”

Dr Seed and course leader Dr Samir Ayoub (Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology and himself a former pharmacology student at UEL) are brilliant as well as entertaining. The BPS recognised this by awarding them the 2014 Rang Prize for excellence in pharmacological teaching. They're both active in pharmacology research.

They want you to be as enthused about the subject as they are and you'll have the opportunity to work with them on key research projects.

For instance, Dr Seed and a colleague submitted a case report to the British Medical Journal for a simple drug which has been dramatically helping sufferers of Loin Pain Haematuria Syndrome, a condition often said to cause the worst pain known to humankind. His UEL students have been helping his research into this dreadful condition.

We want you to become integrated in the pharmacology world and encourage you to join the BPS. You’ll help out, be a delegate and sometimes even present your work at BPS conferences.

You’ll also hear from distinguished guest lecturers organised by our student Pharmacological Society. Recent speakers include Professor Humphrey Rang FRS, President of the BPS and author of our core textbook Pharmacology, and Professor David Nutt, the controversial former government 'drugs czar' who told us, “Pharmacology is the queen of bioscience.” We agree.

Your future career

For years, we’ve been helping produce successful career pharmacologists. Thirty years ago, Dr Paul Mitchell studied here. Now he’s Director of Studies for Natural Sciences at the University of Bath - and we use one of his practicals on our course.

Our course is geared towards thinking about your future, especially with its work placements and other opportunities for work experience.

The story of Suman Gurung gives an idea of how our course can kick-start your career. He was one of 13 of our students over the past two years awarded a BPS bursary worth £2,000 to attend an intensive, one-week residential research techniques course.

Suman's excellent final-year stem cell research project, conducted with course leader Dr Ayoub, helped earn him first-class honours degree. He then landed a job at a cosmetics company working on stem cell therapies for baldness.

And he’s far from the only one. Hilda Bellony had her research work presented at the BPS meeting and is now a healthcare scientist at Imperial College Hospital aiming for an MSc and then to become a clinical scientist. Veronica Franklin’s placement with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has led to a permanent job with them.

Our  annual career conferences have been a source of inspiration, encouragement and valuable information and advice for pharmacology students. These events include talks by alumni pharmacology students, employers and recruitment agencies.

Your degree will leave you well placed to take up a research post, maybe at a university or in a research institute, to enter the exciting field of drug discovery. You’ll also be able to apply for medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and veterinary medicine as a graduate.

Politics and International Relations

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $12,700.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Do you want to make sense of the post-truth world, encapsulated by events such as Brexit and the US Election? Are you interested in understanding how global powers interact, both in times of war and peace?

Would you like to know more about international organisations and their capacity to control and shape development around the world? Do you want to learn about political participation and become an active citizen, so that you can contribute to policy-making processes?

If you answer 'Yes' to any of these questions, then our International Relations course is for you.

Global politics has become increasingly turbulent, foundations and systems are being shaken, and relations between nations are being shifted and tested. There is a new demand for experts who are able to understand and work in this new political arena. With our innovative Politics and International Relations course we can equip you with the skills and knowledge to play an active role in this new world.

There has never been a more pressing and fascinating time to study and make a career in international politics.

How you'll be assessed

The year of study is divided into two terms. If you’re a full-time undergraduate you’ll study three modules per term, each of which we assess with two pieces of coursework. Coursework is made up of essays, book reviews, presentations and project work.

How you'll learn

You’ll be based at our waterside Docklands campus, where we’ll teach you through a combination of lectures and small group seminars. Our emphasis will be on bringing international politics alive.

Our department has developed innovative teaching methods. For example, you will be encouraged to work in groups, write reports, and to give oral presentations.

We’ll encourage you to adopt a critical approach to the subject, to challenge the assumptions about how international politics operates and how it is depicted in the media.

In your third year, you’ll take a dissertation module. This will allow you to study an aspect of international politics that you've found particularly stimulating in greater depth. It will also enable you to develop and shape your own area of expertise.

“We are in the laboratory of east London, says Dr Hall. “Many research projects are focused here, so students will be out in the field when they come here.”

Your future career

You’ll develop a range of skills, knowledge and insights that you can transfer to careers in public bodies such as central and local government, pressure groups, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) or community organisations.

Your tutors place a strong emphasis on role-playing and simulation of real-life situations throughout the course. These will allow you to step into the world of work with confidence.

The variety of roles into which University of East London graduates go into is as wide as it is interesting. You could decide to move into the not-for-profit sector as a community organiser, a case worker or a civic engagement officer.

Or how about becoming a project manager or a campaign organiser? Equally, you’ll have gained the skills necessary to land a job as a communications officer or to specialise in research.

Not only is UEL at the forefront of research, it’s also pioneering new fields of study. Among the many postgraduate courses on offer for those who decide to stay with us is the innovative Refugee Studies MA course – the first of its kind in the country.

Kathryn Perera, chief executive of Movement for Change, can vouch for the rich opportunities available to our undergraduates.

“Studying international relations at UEL offers students the opportunity to access state-of-the-art political training and work with inspiring mentors,” she says.

Public Health

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $12,700.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Here’s a chance for you to study while making a difference to people’s lives. Public health is a dynamic, evolving international subject area, centred on improving the health, wellbeing and quality of life not just in the community around the corner but across entire nations.

It’s an area that’s made for students who are committed and caring, who believe in social justice and who are prepared to work hard within communities to effect change - to do something for the greater good.

At the University of East London, we pride ourselves on inspiring and developing health workers like that from all over the world. One of our students from Uganda told us, “I want to go back afterwards to apply what I’ve learned – and I want my children to be proud of the work I do.”

We’re definitely proud of the work our students do. We’ve revamped our course, making it more practical, ensuring there are more opportunities for you to benefit from work placements and health projects in the community. You’ll leave with hard-earned skills that will impress employers. You’ll be able to make a difference.

What you'll learn

“We’ve just revalidated our course and now the focus is much more on doing things,” explains Course Leader Paul Watts. “So we've trimmed down modules which previously had a lot of theory and it’s now a much more practical course.”

We’ll start in your first year by giving you a thorough understanding of health and healthcare in the UK. You’ll study epidemiology, the cornerstone of public health. It’s the science that studies the patterns, causes and effects of health and disease conditions in populations.

In your second year, you’ll take a practical module where you’ll use our computer labs to access and analyse health data before presenting an epidemiological report on it. That skill of interpreting data is in short supply in the UK and is in hot demand.

You’ll choose your own final-year project. It could be anything from the evaluation of a public health programme to a focus-group study analysing an important local health issue.

How you'll learn

It’s not all about note-taking and tutorial rooms. We like our students to learn in different ways. So a big component is for you to roll up your sleeves and throw yourself into a practical task.

For instance, when you study our Practical Epidemiology module you’ll be accessing significant information and using data analysis software to come up with your own solutions to real problems facing those working in public health.

You’ll be guided by supportive, enthusiastic tutors and lecturers whose specialities complement each other. Our team includes academics such as Dr Mahwish Hayee, who trained as a doctor in Pakistan, and Course Leader Paul Watts, who researches health behaviour and public health in deprived neighbourhoods.

Paul’s research activities have largely been with the Institute of Health and Human Development (IHHD), based at UEL. It’s spearheaded an important project called Well London, helping to deliver healthier eating programmes and new health initiatives in deprived areas. Some of our students volunteer to help and find it a valuable learning experience.

You’ll study a third-year Integrated Public Health module in which you’ll actually work on a project in the community, thanks to the excellent contacts of another of our well-connected lecturers, Anthony Bone.

Your future career

As the need for projects to deliver good health globally becomes ever more urgent, the more clearly we see that public health is not just everybody’s business - it’s a growth business, too. That’s why it needs graduates as well schooled as you will be in these crucial issues.

Employment opportunities abound. Our graduates have gone on to work for employers including Public Health England, local authorities, national government and the civil service, the NHS, charities and social enterprises.

They’ve become public health educators or specialists. They’ve worked in voluntary organisations in the UK and abroad, or advised on policy, or gone on to study epidemiology. Others go into further research. Anything is possible.

Ultimately, your success may depend on how resourceful, enterprising and self-starting you are. 

So it’s at this point that we’ll recount the story of Marina Haque. A forty-something mum who was persuaded by her five children to take up a place at the University of East London through clearing, Marina initially found the academic side challenging.

Yet she grabbed every chance to improve her basic skills, volunteered for the London Borough of Enfield’s public health department and astonished everyone by securing the presence of the head of Public Health England at a UEL conference.

Inspired by our course, she established stop-smoking campaigns outside her son’s primary school, an initiative which spread through the borough, and organised a series of pioneering health awareness events with different healthcare organisations.

Last year, our Marina graduated and announced a further ambition: “One day, I want to be called Dr Haque.” From this course, perhaps anything’s possible!

Social Work

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $12,700.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Are you interested in how people develop and what influences their behaviour? Do you want to help people at risk of harm? Are you interested in legislation and social policy?

This hugely popular course, one of UEL’s flagship degrees, will give you a rewarding insight into contemporary social work and train you to become a reflective, capable and effective practitioner. You’ll learn how to support, protect and speak up for people in significant personal difficulty.

We’ll give you the theory and information you need through lectures and seminars, but this course is all about hands-on experience – or ‘learning by doing’, as we call it.

You’ll undertake supervised placements in your second and third years, applying your learning by working on real-life projects. By doing this, you’ll be able to narrow down your areas of interest for your post-university career.

Thanks to an accreditation agreement between the University of East London and the Health and Care Professions Council, your degree will allow you to practise as a qualified social worker immediately after you graduate.

What you'll learn

On your journey from student to practitioner, you’ll be taught everything you need to know for a career in social work – current legislation and government policy, information sharing and confidentiality requirements, ways of communicating, social policy theories and research methods. 

But knowledge is just one side of the coin. Hands-on skills and experience are an equally important part of a social worker’s toolkit. That’s why ‘learning by doing’ is at the heart of our course. 

For example, you’ll learn about safeguarding and when to take action, how to observe, when to observe, how and when to listen, how to promote social justice and how to practise in a non-discriminatory manner. 

You’ll learn reflective practice – essentially, thinking more carefully about situations. You’ll receive plenty of support to help you develop emotional resilience and an ability to work with others to solve problems. 

Other key skills you’ll gain are the analysis and interpretation of evidence, as well as the art of critical thinking to draw on the appropriate knowledge and improve your performance as a social worker.

How you'll be assessed

We use a range of different assessment approaches. These include case studies, essays, group presentation, practice placement portfolios and a final-year dissertation. Most assessment is carried out through coursework. In order to undertake your first placement in your second year, you’ll first have to pass all of the first-year modules. Similarly, before you can undertake your final-year placement, you’ll have to have completed your second-year modules and placement.

How you'll learn

As well as lectures, seminars, tutorials and practice-based workshops, you’ll learn using role-playing methods to give you crucial skills in areas such as reflective practice, working with others and emotional resilience. 

Preparation for your placements involves skills development, shadowing an experienced practitioner and learning teaching skills with service users and carers. 

You’ll explore different approaches to researching the social world, and we’ll help you to develop your own research proposal.


You’ll carry out two practice placements in a voluntary organisation or a local authority. These allow you to test out the theories and skills you’ve learned in the classroom. We'll support you to reflect on what you’ve learned in these placements and to develop your practice. 

Across the three years of your course, you’ll spend a total of 170 days on direct placement working in the community – a 70-day placement in year two and a 100-day placement in year three. You’ll also spend a further 30 days of developing your skills through practice learning. 

You’ll have the benefit of a personal tutor to support you with your academic study and any other needs you might have. The tutor will visit you at least twice on each of your placements to help deal with any issues that might arise.

Your future career

We have more than 1,000 applicants for places on this course every year and only 65 places. Just to be accepted onto our programme is a massive achievement, and you’ll when on your way to a rewarding career in social work. 

Because we’re the principal social work training provider in east London, you can rest assured that you’ll be in very safe hands when it comes to finding a job after graduating. 

We have strong links with local social work agencies and employers, who have known and trusted us and our graduates for many years. Our students are in constant demand for newly qualified social worker posts, so choosing this course will give you a head start when it comes to finding a job in social work in east London. 

We’re fully accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to award professional qualifications in social work alongside academic degrees. When you complete this degree, you’ll be eligible to register with the HCPC and practice as a social worker, though you’ll still be required to continue your professional development as part of your professional registration. 

You’ll do this through what’s known as your ‘Assessed and Supported Year in Employment’, and you’ll also have the option of gaining further qualifications, including a master’s degree. 

Through these courses, you can continue to develop academically and professionally in line with the framework agreed by The College of Social Work – social work’s professional body.

Sport Therapy

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $12,700.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

We have no hesitation in singing the praises of our sports therapy course. “I think it’s the UK’s leading course, based on its design, its brilliant staff and its location right next to the Olympic Stadium,” says Course Leader Michael Cole. “I think it’s unbeatable.”

It’s a bold claim, but we believe our three-year course – potentially four if you choose our placement year option – merits it. Why? Because it produces sports therapists who’ve had the benefit of expert teaching, plenty of practical experience and whose skills are always in demand.

If you want to work with injured athletes and help them back to full fitness and competition, this course is for you.

You won’t just be there to step in when injury occurs, though. You’ll also need to learn and understand the sports science behind a successful diagnosis as well as how to manage injuries. 

With us, you’ll become highly employable and earn a reputable professional degree from which you can build a successful career.

What you'll learn

This course will give you all the knowledge you’ll need to become confident and assured in five key areas of sports therapy – prevention of injuries, recognition and evaluation, management, rehabilitation and education.

You’ll start by learning all about biomechanics (discovering how the human body moves), anatomy, first aid for sport and sports massage. We’ll introduce you to research skills and methods that you’ll end up using to complete an independent research project in your final year.

In your second year you’ll learn the finer points of manual therapy as well as how to make nutritional assessments and analyse movement. In your final year, you’ll specialise more and study advanced first aid, including how to remove a casualty safely from the field of play. 

Your final independent research project will be your opportunity to make a detailed study of an area of injury prevention or therapy that particularly interests you.

How you'll be assessed

 

We’ll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible.


The balance of coursework and exams in year two will depend on your optional choices. In your third year, half of your assessment will be based on research coursework and a work placement.

How you'll learn

Right from the start of our innovative course, you’ll find yourself out and about working at local, national and international events. 

You’re just as likely to be found helping fun runners at a local road race as learning from experts at a major international event. Last year, that was a trip to the Berlin Marathon.

We’ll offer you fantastic opportunities for hands-on experience. For instance, thanks to our third-year employability module, one of our students is currently studying for her degree while working for a couple of days each week at Essex County Cricket Club.

If you opt for the one-year placement between years two and three, you could find yourself enjoying rare opportunities made possible by staff with enviable contacts. For example, our Course Leader, Michael Cole, has worked with top football clubs, the British swimming squad and Britain’s Olympic team (Team GB).

Surveying and Mapping Sciences

A Undergraduate Program offered by University of East London .

  • Deadline is Aug 3, 2020.
  • Start Date is Sep 9, 2019.
  • Teaching languages are English.
  • Price $12,700.
  • Duration 3 Years.

Course summary

Surveying involves the precise measurement of spatial data - information that’s crucial to a huge range of construction projects, on land and offshore.

On large building projects, surveyors are the first on site to establish the basic measurements and the last to leave, checking everything is in the right place.

Surveyors are also in high demand, and this course will give you the skills to take advantage of a worldwide employment market.

We have superb links with industry and run a regular programme of guest speakers. You’ll also visit major projects in London - one of the world’s most dynamic construction areas.

You’ll undertake a 50-50 split of academic and practical work. This will involve fieldwork projects, including a residential scheme at the end of your first year, and classroom and laboratory exercises.

You’ll also be able to apply for student membership of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors - an international qualifying body dedicated to the regulation, education and training of surveyors working in civil engineering.

What you'll learn

You’ll learn the techniques required to produce the reliable spatial data on which all construction tasks depend.

You won’t just be measuring. You’ll be analysing data, presenting it and managing it. And of course re-measuring… just to be sure.

The course involves a range of ways to map geographical features. You’ll learn about land surveying and geodesy, which involves taking into account the earth’s curvature when you are measuring large areas.

Other fields of study will involve photogrammetry – the science of making measurements from photographs – laser scanning, remote sensing, and hydrographic surveying, typically investigating the seabed.

We’ll also introduce you to cadastral surveying, which combines technical and legal knowledge to establish boundaries.

The modules you’ll take include land and construction surveying, legal and regulatory framework, computer programming, data acquisition and 3D modelling, engineering surveying and sea surveying.

All match the required standards of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES).

How you'll be assessed

The way we assess you varies from module to module but will include examinations, coursework, project work, laboratory reports, presentations, and tests of competence in practical sessions.

How you'll learn

With more than 60 years' experience, surveying is one of the longest established areas of teaching within the University of East London.

Most of our students on this course work part-time in the profession, including during the summer break, while they’re studying. This is usually on a paid basis.

Throughout your studies you’ll undertake a number of small projects, usually based on practical work. Your final year will include a project involving independent research and study of a technical subject.

This project will be supervised by a member of staff with an interest in the field and will normally include some laboratory work or the analysis of a specific surveying problem. Throughout, you’ll be working with the very latest surveying equipment and software.

Each term, we’re visited by around 20 local industry professionals – known as the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) – to update us on changing requirements for graduates. They also supervise final-year projects, when they’ll be looking out for likely candidates to recruit for jobs.

This course also has regular contact with Fugro UK, the offshore surveying and exploration company, Plowman Craven, one of the UK’s biggest land surveyors, and other major construction companies such as Skanska and Costain.

Your future career

This course has a superb record in getting graduates into employment.
Likely UK destinations include the Highways Agency, Network Rail, Thames Water and local authorities.

The emphasis placed internationally on precision measurement of boundaries in property sales means surveyors are hugely valued worldwide. 
Many overseas students who graduate from this course return home to work in their government land survey departments.

Other graduates have moved into UK companies specialising in surveying land for new houses or roads.

The course is also a route into forensic surveying, which establishes precise data for use in court cases. You might be involved in checking measurements following a serious road accident, or attending a serious crime scene, such as the aftermath of bomb explosion.

Your knowledge of hydrographic surveying will equip you for worldwide employment opportunities in the fields of offshore gas and oil exploration.
These skills are also required for tasks such as searching for aircraft which have disappeared over the ocean. The search in the Pacific for a missing Malaysian Airlines plane in 2014 involved hydrographic surveyors.

Recent UEL graduates in Surveying and Mapping Sciences have gone on to land jobs with FUGRO, Plowman Craven, Ordnance Survey, Scopus, Survey Solutions and Crossrail.

Course summary

The University of East London is making swift strides towards its aim of becoming London’s No 1 university for sport, and our much-admired Sport and Exercise Science degree is leading the way.

Study our challenging course and you’ll be examining the role that biomechanics, physiology, psychology and nutrition play in human performance. You’ll also look at how these disciplines interact, so you receive the complete education a multi-disciplinary sports scientist needs.

You’ll have the chance to study optional subjects that give our course its special flavour – such as our module in disability sport.

It’s a course that has attracted some of Britain’s leading sportsmen and women of the day such as European 200m champion Adam Gemili, Commonwealth 200m bronze medallist Bianca Williams and double European and Commonwealth medal-winning swimmer Aimee Willmott. It also develops the sports scientists and teachers who’ll help deliver the champions of tomorrow. 

If you want to know how good our course is, don’t just take our word for it. Listen to Adam.

“As an athlete you need to understand how your body works - the biomechanics," he says. "That knowledge has really helped me when I’m in the blocks to get the biggest first step that I can.”

What you'll learn

We’ve worked hard to make this course as flexible as possible and you’ll discover we’ve found a pretty good balance between learning theory and actually seeing what that looks like in practice.

The beauty of sharing a first year with your colleagues from our Sports Coaching and Sport, Physical Education and Development courses is that you can swap to one of those courses at the end of year one if you wish. 

In year two, you’ll complete a mixture of compulsory and optional modules. The options include Disability, Sport & PE, Principles & Practice in Teaching & Coaching and Inclusion in Youth Sport & PE.

For your final-year project, there’s more scope to specialise, allowing you to focus on areas of particular interest to you. 

For instance, one of our students studied the coaching philosophy of Saracens Rugby Union Club. Another went to Leyton Orient to research how football goalkeepers distribute the ball after collecting it in their area. This fascinating study led to him becoming a match analyst at the club after graduating.

How you'll be assessed

 

We'll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible.


The balance of coursework and exams in year two will depend on your optional choices. In your third year, half of your assessment will be based on research coursework and a work placement.

How you'll learn

We definitely like to do things differently at UEL, so there’s no danger of it being all lectures and no practical application. Indeed, we want you to throw yourself into sport. So you’ll get involved in workshops and do your own sports coaching and lab sessions.

You’ll learn in top-quality facilities at both our Docklands and Stratford campuses. We have fully equipped and advanced labs, including our own biomechanics suite to study people’s gait as well as specialist software used for nutritional analysis.

At our £21million SportsDock complex, we have a superb fitness centre and strength and conditioning room.

It’s important to us that our course is aligned with the principles of the British Association of Sports and Exercise Science (BASES), the UK’s professional body for sports and exercise science in the UK. The course is also accredited by SkillsActive, so you’ll be able to complete your Level 2 and Level 3 Gym and Personal Training Awards while you’re here.

Your friendly and supportive tutors, led by Dr Richard Buscombe, are all active in research and in community-based projects. You can get involved in worthwhile schemes like the one, funded by the NHS, in which we deliver exercise sessions for people with clinical conditions and young people who’ve suffered from alcohol and drugs abuse.

Your future career

A host of exciting career avenues in the sporting and teaching worlds will open up to you once you graduate, but the great thing about our course is that you may find they open up to you even while you’re studying for your degree.

That’s because our work placements and the relationships we have built with sports organisations and schools are so strong.

They’re optional and flexible placements, which means you can choose your best time to undertake them. We have strong links with football clubs such as Leyton Orient, West Ham and Millwall and various sports academies and schools. 

We’ve had students working at activeNewham, the sports arm of our local council, London Sport and the Olympic Park, which is right on our doorstep in Stratford. In some cases, these placements lead to full-time jobs. For instance, Oktay Huseyin was placed at a tennis academy in Essex and is now the head of strength and conditioning there.

Some of you will go on to further study, like one of Dr Buscombe’s students who did an extraordinary third-year project on spirituality and fandom in Lithuanian basketball. She’s now studying the same subject for her PhD in Melbourne.

Our graduates have gone on to work for employers as varied as the National Basketball Association (NBA), Leyton Orient FC and the London Borough of Newham.

We’ve produced coaches, fitness club managers, personal trainers, private and community coaches and teachers. We even managed to find one of our students, Marshall Tutu, some tennis opportunities between his studies. Now he’s playing as a full-time professional.

We’ll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams. Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a final-year project. Most of the assessment in your first year is by coursework and we’ll give you as much feedback as possible.

In your third year, you’ll either take five core modules or undertake a work placement. We’ll assess you accordingly.

How you'll learn

One of the hallmarks of a University of East London course is the variety of ways in which you’ll be invited to learn. It could be through lectures, presentations or practical lab sessions in our dedicated pharmaceutical science lab.

You’ll hear from fascinating guest speakers, including industry experts. And you could find yourself, as our previous students have, presenting your own research work at the London BioNat Network Research meeting in front of eminent scientists.

Our supportive, friendly staff are experts in all areas of the subject. They’re led by Dr Mukhlesur Rahman, an internationally renowned expert in the field of drugs discoveries from medicinal plants. His research has been extensively published and he has lectured at major conferences in India and the United States.

Your third-year project will offer you exciting and stimulating research opportunities. Some of Dr Rahman’s students are currently working on projects on medicinal plants, looking for a new compound that might work against the ‘super bug’ MRSA.

We’re keen for you to see at first hand how the pharmaceutical industry works. So we have recently organised visits for our third-year students to the labs of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the science-led global healthcare giants.

We’ve also helped organise work placement opportunities for some of our students to work at Herbs in a Bottle – a pharmaceutical company that supplies herbal medicines.

“The way we've designed modular structures of the course, we aim our students to acquire the best possible intellectual and transferable skills for their life-long learning," says Dr Rahman.

"This will not only make them happy in securing a rewarding job but also develop their confidence in critical thinking and problem-solving in pharmaceutical sectors."

 

Your future career

You’ll find that your degree in pharmaceutical science will be an ideal entry point into a range of careers, giving you plenty of choice about the direction you take.

You could, for example, go on to work with a pharmaceutical company helping to develop new drugs and evaluating their effectiveness.

Pharmaceutical companies employ graduates to help advise customers on the technical aspects of the products they offer. Then there are chemical companies looking for graduates who understand how drugs are developed and have proven analytical skills.

If you’d rather pursue an academic or research-based career, you can build on your BSc with an MSc, MRes or PhD.

Outside the chemical industries, a degree in pharmaceutical science will open up teaching opportunities and careers in finance and accounting.

Whatever your next step, after the contacts you’ve made and the opportunities you’ve had to see the pharmaceutical industry up close during your course, you’ll leave us perfectly prepared to pursue a rewarding career.

The statistics back this up. The latest figures show 81 per cent of UEL’s bioscience graduates are in work within six months of finishing their degree.
