Pharmacy with Integrated Foundation Year University of Brighton

Undergraduate

With an extra year of integrated study at foundation level, this course opens up opportunities in the sciences if you don't hold the required scientific A-levels or equivalent qualifications, want to change career or simply want to explore the options offered by university-level science before deciding on your specific pathway.

The foundation year gives you the support, knowledge and skills you need. On successful completion of the foundation year, you can progress to the Pharmacy MPharm.

Our MPharm programme is taught through a series of case studies that bring together the science of pharmacy with the needs of the patient.

The course offers placements in either community or hospital settings in each year of the course so you can gain the experience needed to successfully enter the workplace.

You will benefit from inter-professional learning opportunities with Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS), and from teaching informed by our world-leading research.
Important information for international students

All international students from outside the European Economic Area who graduate with an MPharm from a UK university must apply for a visa in order to work in the UK (ie to undertake their pre-registration training).
