I was wondering what is the best university for Pharmacy taking into account employability after the course, quality of teaching and research.

Aston is a very good one, aunt was an ex-lecturer there. Its also established (and not likely to go bust!!!) Many people were going to new schools, finding they shut down mid way through their course and they end up with no degree

I would say it's between:

Bath
Aston
Nottingham

however, restructuring h82think's table, according to the Guardian, it's:

Aston
Bath
LJMU

That's in terms of employability. If you're in it solely for studying, go LSOP. Apparently has one of the best phamraceutical courses in Europe, can't really get much better than that. However, i think it's not a good idea to go somewhere just because it's got a good rep, but that's just my opinion.

Its not Aston, quite frankly it's a s*** hole
A s***e place doesn't necessarily mean an awful uni. I've been to Aston, granted, it's a hole but it's undeniable the pharmacy department is *very* well recognised. They rank within the top 3 for getting the biggest research grants in the country, only being firmly topped by Bath

From what I have heard, it is Bath. My dad holds a pharmacy degree (he's a surgeon so its an intercollated one) and has lectured at Bath and says the department is very good. Also, the rankings (Good University guide) rank Bath highly (top infact with 98% job prospects). In short, Bath is top...

King isn't too bad either, LSOP is very good, but I have to say that I honestly think that the best school of pharmacy is either Notts or Bath, their teaching and labs are amazing!

Obviously it changes from year to year but generally, Nottingham, Bath, Manchester and Cardiff are consistently the top.

TBH, I don't know what the fuss is about LSOP, Aston and LJMU.

So overall, Nottingham FTW!

it doesnt even matter in the end.. a 2.1 with a passed pre reg year and youll be fine
Of course it matters, or that wouldn't justify why some departments ask for BCC and others AAB

hsn is correct actually, employers don't really look at where you got the actual degree because all the pharmacy courses are set to standards set by the RSPGB.

I'll be studying pharmacy at Bath at the end of this year (gap year), so I have to say Bath is the best
