Toxicology, the study of drugs and poisons, is an expanding area of study that offers graduates a wide range of career options. On this course you'll study the signs and symptoms associated with the use of common drugs and poisons, basic pharmacology, mechanisms of drug/poison action, drug metabolism and drug elimination from the body. In addition to the more traditional areas of forensic toxicology, the course will introduce you to aspects of environmental forensic science where toxicology may be involved.
The course is delivered by experienced forensic toxicologists and forensic practitioners with an emphasis on professional capabilities. Wherever possible the study will be case lead. Our objective is to provide excellent, theoretically informed, science-based learning as well as research skills.
Hear from Gina Ross, a current student, referring to the course leader, Professor David Ossleton: "Thank you for everything you have done this year (as well as inspiring me to take toxicology when I was an undergraduate here). You have exceeded my expectations and helped me to improve not just my toxicological skills but my confidence in myself. I am so glad that I took the MSc and I look forward to seeing you in the future."
