Regulatory Affairs - BioPharmacheuticals
Graduates will learn about EU regulatory requirements, as well as the main features of the regulatory system in the US, which is the most important other jurisdiction for RA professionals based in Ireland. Graduates of this course will gain a Level 9 Professional Diploma in regulatory affairs which can build towards a MSc in Engineering Practice.
Brexit means that more Irish based pharmaceutical companies are managing biopharma regulation in house, resulting in increased job opportunities in the field.
