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 Foundation 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 Foundation experience (usually hospital and community practice).

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

Both our MPharm programmes are accredited by the GPhC.

The University of Bradford is ranked 11th in the UK for Pharmacy and Pharmacology by The Guardian.

This is where my kindness flourishes

"Pharmacy is so broad. There's so many things that you can do. You can work in a hospital, you can work in a community, or independent prescribing. There's so many opportunities, you've just got to make the most of the opportunities that you have. The University of Bradford really prepares you for what to expect."

Where Pharmacy can take you

Our unique 5-year MPharm programme has been running for over 45 years and enables you to undertake your Foundation 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 Foundation training 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
