At the College of Pharmaceutical Sciences (CPS), you will learn how new drugs for diseases such as cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer's can be discovered and developed.
The College of Pharmaceutical Sciences is an international BSc programme in drug development, taught fully in English. You will learn to develop innovative drugs: from the search for new targets in diseases, the development of advanced ways of administering medicines, to the testing of new drugs in patients. To develop a new drug many disciplines come together, such as biomedical- and pharmaceutical sciences, chemistry and biology.

As a drug designer you need more than theoretical knowledge. You must be skilled in the lab, be able to define a research question and set-up a plan to answer it. You must be able to collaborate with a variety of people and present your results. This is why every course contains a group project where you work with fellow students on real-life biomedical problems. This way you learn to apply the theory of pharmaceutical science to creatively solve these problems. Moreover, by working in a projectgroup you will develop skills in 'problem-shooting' and a professional attitude in cooperation and communication.
