This course exists for students who wish to sample all of the science subjects before transferring to either aquaculture (GA730), biology (GA731), chemical pharmaceutical sciences (GA732), physics instrumentation (GA733), or applied microbiology/biochemistry (GA734).

Year one involves the study of a range of science subjects, including Computing, Chemistry, Biology, Maths, Physics and Discovering Science.


 

This programme focuses on the practical application of chemistry and includes Medicinal Chemistry, Forensic Analysis, Quality Management, Pharmaceutical Science, and Analytical Techniques.

Students learn how new medicines are discovered and how to ensure that they are safe and of high quality. A strong emphasis on practical work and projects gives the students a great experience in all these areas. It prepares graduates for immediate employment in the pharmaceutical, chemical, biomedical and biotechnology sectors.

There is no need to have studied chemistry for the Leaving Certificate, as the fundamentals of all science subjects are delivered in year one.


Medical Science - GA785
 

This programme will provide students with a solid foundation in the basic sciences together with the skills and knowledge to practice medical laboratory science. There is a 27 week structured in-service placement as a student medical scientist during the third year. Graduates are specifically qualified to work in modern hospital laboratories and are involved in the investigation and diagnosis of medical conditions and disease.
