This is Pharmacy

clinical knowledge and practical experience

Our Pharmacy programmes are designed to prepare you for the modern pharmacy sector, giving you the skills and confidence you need to practise as a pharmacist and achieve your full potential.

The programme is predominantly taught using an innovative and active learning method called Team-Based Learning (TBL). In TBL classes you will actively apply your knowledge to solve real-world pharmacy problems through team discussion and debate facilitated by our expert academic staff.

Our 5-year MPharm programme enables you to complete your pre-registration training as part of the programme. This means you will leave us as a qualified pharmacist, pending successful completion of the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) registration exam. The programme includes two separate six-month periods of pre-registration experience (usually hospital and community practice).

We also offer a 4-year MPharm programme, where you will need to complete a 1-year pre-registration period after graduation.

Both our MPharm programmes are accredited by the GPhC.

We have 8 courses in this area.

This is where

...I came out of my shell

Nabila Hussain - MPharm Pharmacy

"In every year, you do at least three days placement; two days in a community Pharmacy and one day in a hospital. I’ve done that throughout, you do that in every year of the course.

Now that I’m in my fourth year, I’m doing the sandwich programme, where I do six months placement in my fourth year and six months in my fifth year.

So, I’ve already been out on half of my pre-registration training that we need to do before I can become a Pharmacist and I think I did enjoy it."

Where Pharmacy can take you

Our unique 5-year MPharm programme has been running for over 45 years and enables you to undertake your pre-registration training as part of the programme.

This means you will leave us as a qualified pharmacist pending successful completion of the GPhC registration exam. We also offer a 4-year programme, where you will need to complete a 1-year pre-registration period after graduation.

Most of our graduates progress into roles in hospital and community pharmacy, although there are many other career paths within the sector. These include:

  • Industrial pharmacy 
  • Academia/clinical academia
  • Military pharmacy 
  • Regulatory affairs
  • Working in GP practices/care homes
  • Urgent and emergency care
  • Veterinary pharmacy
