12. Programme structure (levels, modules, credits and progression requirements)12. 1 Overall structure of the programmeAll programmes can be studied over three or four years on a full-time basis, or part-time over a minimum of five years.They are also modularised with each module, except the placement module, having a credit value of either 15 or 30credits. The placement module carries 120 credit points and is normally taken in the third year of the four-yearsandwich programme. The total credit points required for each award are as follows: BSc Pharmaceutical Chemistry – 360 credit pointsBSc Pharmaceutical Chemistry (Sandwich) – 480 credit pointsBSc Pharmaceutical Chemistry with Foundation Year – 480 credits points BSc Pharmaceutical Chemistry (Sandwich) with Foundation Year – 600 credits pointsFor the Foundation Year, students will take a total of 120 credit points at level 3 and must pass all modules toprogress onto year one. Year one comprises a total of 120 credit points at level 4. For subsequent years on the BSc,the number of credits and the levels are as follows:1. Year 2, 120 credits at level 52. Final year, 120 credits at level 6To progress from year 2 to final year, students must pass all modules.Students admitted to BSc will be able to transfer to the MSci if they have a 2ii grade profile or better (i.e. at least 50%of the module grades must be 2ii or higher) by the end of year two.The curriculum is based on four themes, which are (1) chemistry, (2) pharmaceutical science, (3) chemical techniquesand procedures and (4) computational science and mathematics. In each year, students will study at least one modulecovering one of the themes.12.2 Levels and modulesLevel 4COMPULSORYAll students must take all of thefollowing:BMS1714 (15 credits)BMS1724 (30 credits)BMS1774 (30 credits)BMS1754 (15 credits)BIO1608 (30 credits)Level 5COMPULSORYAll students must take all of thefollowing:BMS2007 (30 credits)BMS2765 (15 credits)BMS2715 (15 credits)BMS2725 (30 credits)BIO2417 (15 credits)BIO2419 (15 credits)Level 6COMPULSORYStudents on the BSc programmesmust also take the following:BMS3336 (30 credits)BMS3726 (15 credits)BMS3736 (30 credits)BMS3746 (15 credits)BIO3417 (15 credits)BMS3006 (Only for the Sandwichprogrammes)OPTIONALThere are no optional modules.PROGRESSION REQUIREMENTSNormally all modules must bepassed but a marginal failed modulemay be compensatable inaccordance with Universityregulations.This does not apply to the noncompensatable module BMS1724OPTIONALThere are no optional modules.PROGRESSION REQUIREMENTSNormally all modules must bepassed but a marginal failed modulemay be compensatable inaccordance with Universityregulations.This does not apply to the noncompensatable module BMS2725OPTIONALThere are optional modules.Students must choose one fromthe list below.BMS3776 (15 credits, not runningfor 2020/2021)BIO3419 (15 credits)BMS3716 (15 credits)PROGRESSION REQUIREMENTSAll modules must be passed.

A curriculum map relating programme learning outcomes to modulesSee Curriculum Map attached. 14. Information about assessment regulationsThe assessment regulations are the general university regulations.Each module has one or more pieces of assessment. A minimum of 40% is required on each piece of assessment topass. Within the module, where there is more than one component to a module assessment, and all pieces of workare at a pass grade, the marks are aggregated and the grade is given using the Middlesex University 20 point scale.There are opportunities for re-assessment in failed components of work and specific details are given in the modulehandbooks. At levels 5 and 6, where a student has failed a piece of work, the mark of the resubmitted work is cappedat 40%.Students must adhere to module assessment deadlines. Where a student cannot meet the deadline for extenuatingreasons an extension can be formally requested.In some modules, especially those with laboratories, participation in the sessions is essential in order toachieve the learning of the module. Students who do not attend sufficiently may not be able to submit the relevantassessment for the module.15. Placement opportunities, requirements and supportStudents can go on a year-long placement in year 3 but they must secure a placement by the end of year 2. Possibleplacements include research or project work in chemical and pharmaceutical laboratories both in industry andacademia. Placements will not take place in 2020/2021.In preparation for securing a placement, they will normally be provided with help with CV writing and interviewtechniques. Employability service and academic staff may notify students of employers who are seeking placements.However, it is the student’s responsibility to identify and contact suitable placement providers.Whilst on placement, students will be nominated a placement supervisor, who is responsible to ensure that thestudent achieves the agreed learning outcomes. Additionally, an academic tutor will be appointed to monitor student’sprogress whilst the student is on placement. The academic will normally visit the student at least once if feasible andhave regular contact with the student and supervisor using email, telephone or another type of communication media.Both mentor and student will have a guide handbook to explain the requirements and students will keep an ongoingreflective diary of their experiences and also produce a critical appraisal of the organisation they work in.16. Future careersPharmaceutical chemistry graduates can gain employment in a wide variety of settings, particularly laboratory-basedwork. The degree is directly related to employment in pharmaceutical industry as analytical, computational orpharmaceutical chemist as well as research and development scientist.Other career opportunities include sales and marketing of chemical or pharmaceutical products, science writing,research grant or pharmaceutical regulations officer and in education at all levels.Alternatively, a graduate can progress onto an MSc or PhD in the field of pharmaceutical and analytical chemistry andother related disciplines.17. Particular support for learning (if applicable) Middlesex University has specialist laboratory facilities for the development of practical skills Middlesex University Library will provide access to specialist journals. Access is provided online via e-journals andthe kortex scheme as well as on campus. For ease of access for students based at Hendon, the library hasfacilities for inter-library photocopying of any articles required. Other articles may be obtained from the BritishLibrary in London where a similar arrangement for photocopying articles exists A student may undertake a research project at their workplace where relevant and possible Applicants with a disability can enter the programme following an assessment of their needs, and to determine ifthey can work safely in the laboratory Learning resource services and facilities at Middlesex include a CAL suite and internet access as well as EnglishLearning and Language Support Learning resources and other support for modules is delivered via myUniHub. In the specific module area,students can find all module materials as well as other information to support learning including video material,links to reading lists, quizzes and discussion boards Departmental Graduate Academic Assistants support students with their coursework and subject understanding insmall group tutorials or on a 1:1 basis
