    hey all

    does any1 know whether it hugely matters that you get a degree
    for pharmacy through a university that isnt qualified? Does it make
    a huge difference?

    no because by the time you finish your 4th year and the uni becomes accredited then your degree also becomes accredited

    No, a litle bit of research about the uni before can go far. Most uni do get their accreditation, keele and reading should.

    I would just be wary of DMU, sunderland and possibly wolverhampton as the one who may lose their accreditation.

    But tbh as a prospective Pharmacy student I advised you not to take this factor too much into consideration when choosing a university.

    If your uni loses it accreditation on the year you graduate then you don't get MPharm.. i think you get a BSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences. This means you cannot do the prereg and you can't become a pharmacist.

    It is very very rare for this to happen so don't get scared by what i have said. The schools who are listed in this thread are likely to have gotten their act together so they should complete the accreditation process.
