Course summary

Our pharmacy degree will prepare you for a career as a pharmacist. You’ll learn about patient care by studying basic and applied science, and clinical and professional practice. The four-year MPharm programme provides pharmacy education of excellent quality and focuses on producing future pharmacists who will promote safe and effective use of medicines, ensuring patient and public safety at all times. Our graduates will demonstrate intellectual creativity and curiosity in their professional practice. The MPharm curriculum is outcomes-focused, and it is designed to prepare students for their future professional practice as both a pharmacist and prescriber. Teaching covers basic and applied science and clinical and professional practice, all in the context of patient care. The three core themes of Biological science and therapeutics, Pharmaceutical sciences, and Professional practice and prescribing, are taught through year-long modules and these are brought to life through real scenarios based around body systems. By using these body systems – across the three core themes, we break down barriers, enabling you to learn more effectively. Successful completion will allow you to undertake the General Pharmaceutical Council foundation training year that leads to registration as a pharmacist in Great Britain.
