About this Course

This course will develop knowledge of the design, development, analysis and production of medicines, the drug industry and regulatory affairs. It is particularly suitable for those who are keen to enter employment in areas such as pharmaceutical marketing, formulation, sales, production, public relations, regulatory affairs, process development, medical statistics and clinical trial organisations.
Students will learn about a broad range of formulations and pharmaceutical technologies through the use of examples and case studies along with the underpinning science. They will be given hands-on experience in a number of preformulation and formulation technologies. Clinical trials and other aspects of regulatory affairs, including those covering biotechnological products will be covered in an integrated manner. Employability has been embedded into the course and the varied assessment strategies reflect this. Our Teaching and Learning Centre and the use of formative (practice) assessments are intended to give students the opportunity to develop communication, computing and other key skills.

Entry Requirements

Applicants for this Master programme must normally have a first or second class Level 8 honours degree (NFQ or other internationally recognised equivalent) in a science, business, engineering or management subject(s).
In certain cases a blend of qualifications, motivation and relevant experience will be acceptable. Applicants applying for entry through progression routes other than those listed above will be considered on a case by case basis using equivalent prior learning that is recognised by IT Carlow as meeting this requirement in line with the Institute RPL policy.
