Undergraduate study

We deliver a number of undergraduate teaching programmes with strong emphasis on lifelong learning. Our courses are taught and supported by dedicated staff who are experts in their fields.

Our undergraduate MPharm degree course is the first one in the country to embed two separate six-month periods of pre-registration experience. This course commenced in 1970 and remains innovative in pharmacy education.

Our Clinical Sciences BSc - either a three-year programme or a four-year programme including a foundation year - allows students a unique and exciting opportunity to study science and health studies, which can lead to a career in medicine, healthcare sciences, and other healthcare professions.
