The course focuses on the broad range of issues that make up modelling and simulation efforts during drug development and these are reinforced via hands-on application of the skills to real data.
The MSc Model-based Drug Development programme has been developed with an emphasis on mechanistic approaches to assessing and predicting Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics (PKPD); such as Physiologically-based Pharmacokinetics (PBPK) .
We view this under the general umbrella of systems biology and hence enable students to apply their knowledge of modelling and simulation in various areas of research within the pharmaceutical industry.
The flexible, distance learning nature of the course means that you can fit study around your other commitments. The only required time on-site is during the twice yearly residential sessions.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2016, the tuition fees are as follows:
MSc (part-time distance learning)

International students (per annum): £6,250 per annum
PGDip (part-time distance learning)
UK/EU students (per annum): £4,166 per annum
International students (per annum): £4,166 per annum
The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive for the course tuition, administration and computational costs during your studies.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of courses lasting more than a year for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry).
