    College of Pharmaceutical Science: Why?

     September 2001:
        New B.Pharm. and M.Pharm. programmes (3+3 years)
        Research master (2 years): Drug Innovation
        Unable to attract reasonable number research-interested students
          through the B.Pharm. Programme
     November 2008:
        Discuss the possibility to design an additional undergraduate
          programme (dean, faculty of science and research insitute UIPS)
        Strategic development: discuss with rector magnificus

     May 2009:
        Curriculum committee established

     September 2010: CPS started

    College of Pharmaceutical Science. How?

     A bachelor program in Pharmaceutical
      Research: Discovery and development

     Emphasis on the central nervous
      system and immune system

     Honours programme

     International, English

     Selective admission


                More than theoretical knowledge
                Critical attitude
                Creativity
                Formulate a research question,
                  design a research protocol,
                  discuss results
                View research in a broader
                Present results
                Work in an interdisciplinary team

    Educational format

     Inquiry based learning
         Selected students are expected to be
           highly motivated, gifted and talented
         Students will be trained for the
           discovery and development of drugs in
           a research environment
         Students are expected to cope with the
           speed at which new knowledge
           becomes available

     Develop high-end learning, fostering students’ interest,
       motivation, and higher-order thinking skills
     Attention for self-regulated learning and creativity
         Talented students ask for more speed, less repetition and more
         Teachers must support students in developing their own personal
           understanding of scientific concepts
