You will learn about pharmaceuticals from the discovery and development of new active substances to their effect and use in patients. A MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences will qualify you to work in the pharmaceutical industry, public drug administrations, in academia and other research institutions.
Career OpportunitiesA MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences will give you an educational ballast that will supplement other experts in the field. Your educational profile will be much in demand thanks to your BSc in a technical, natural science or health science field combined with a pharmaceuticals-oriented MSc that focuses on medicines and the development of drugs and related products.
The University of Copenhagen is located in the midst of one of the world’s leading biotech areas – Medicon Valley – home to almost 300 ‘life science’ companies. The School of Pharmaceutical Sciences is known for its extensive cooperation with industry. One of these cooperative endeavours is the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences’s own Drug Research Academy (DRA), where a number of Danish biotech and pharmaceutical companies co-finance PhD scholarships. DRA covers all key research areas in drug development from research, development and production to clinical testing.
