Course Summary

This programme provides vocational training in the theoretical, clinical and laboratory aspects of toxicology. You will learn about the nature and mechanism of adverse effects of chemicals such as those found in industry, in the household, in agriculture, in medicine and those that occur naturally in the environment. We give particular emphasis to molecular and cellular mechanisms of toxicity and to risk assessment. Our Toxicology programmes are designed to meet the future needs of the sector, with contributions by international experts from the pharmaceutical industries, contract research companies, government and external toxicology centres.

The MSc Toxicology programme provides training in theoretical, clinical and laboratory aspects of toxicology and acts as a conversion course, taking students from a variety of backgrounds and giving them new skills to enable them to move into research and employment in the field of toxicology and related disciplines. The MSc in Toxicology programme aims to: provide a broad, modern training in the theoretical and practical aspects of toxicology; prepare individuals to collate, interpret and communicate toxicological information; provide an opportunity to study at the cutting edge of research in a chosen specialist field of toxicology in clinical practice, industry or academia; develop student awareness of the importance of toxicology to industry, health, the environment and society.
