It is primarily focused on non-pharmaceutical undergraduates, however, have a chemical or biological bachelor's degree behind him. Drug Development is a study where your focus will be to develop, test and produce a pharmaceutical product. It can be anything from a small pill against a local pain to an injection against rash or dizziness.

You will after two years of training to be a specialist in the above circumstances and you will certainly find good employment opportunities in the private sector.
Candidates with a background in pharmaceutical sciences often find employment in the pharmaceutical industry, for example. biotechnology or medical device companies. You can therefore look forward to the exciting challenges at work, which is certainly not poorly paid.
Employment in pharmaceutical companies such as Lundbeck, Novo Nordisk, Pharmexa and other illustrious Danish companies.
