Course UCAS code: B231
Qualification type:
  • MPharm (H), Full-time , Duration: 5 Years
Course Summary:
Our five-year course has been designed as a modification to our four-year MPharm course, which has a global reputation for exceptional, innovative teaching, backed by world-class research. Designed for international students, the first three years of this integrated course will largely follow the same structure as our four-year programme. In each of your final two years, however, you’ll undertake a six-month placement: one in a hospital setting and the other in a community pharmacy setting. Our course structure means you retain your student status for the duration of your course, removing the need to seek a separate Tier 2 visa for pre-registration training after graduation. With support from leading researchers and practitioners, you’ll hone your knowledge of chemistry and biology, and learn how to apply it to drug design, drug delivery and pharmacology to ultimately optimise patient care. As well as exceptional training in the core requirements, you’ll cover a broad range of subjects integrating healthcare and science, enabling you to identify and specialise in the areas you find most interesting. Whatever your focus, your course will reflect the most up-to-date developments in pharmaceutical science and the most recent advances in clinical practice and is accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). This course is intended for international students that wish to become a registered Pharmacist in the UK. If you wish to register in your home country we recommend you check this course is acceptable for that purpose in your country. UK and EU students should apply for our four-year MPharm programme (B230). **Course Structure** Our five-year MPharm with Placement degree programme is carefully structured to cover a number of compulsory topics on essential pharmaceutical theory and methodology, plus completion of two six-month pre-registration training placements in line with the requirements of the GPhC. During your five years you will cover areas including: - Life sciences chemistry - Cells, physiology and pharmacology - Pharmaceutics and dosage form design - Drug design and mechanisms of drug actions - Neurology - Endocrinology - Immunology - Cancer - Cardiovascular disease - Renal disease - Gastrointestinal disease - Infectious diseases In year two we’ll prepare you to attend a selection day at the start of year three, encompassing interviews and practical assessments with employers. A successful outcome will result in your pre-registration placements being allocated to you at this stage. If you are unsuccessful, you’ll be required to transfer to the four-year MPharm degree programme, and you will be responsible for securing your own pre-registration training position and the corresponding Tier 2 visa. In your final two years you’ll bring together everything you have learnt and apply it to complex patient situations. In year four, you’ll undertake your first six-month pre-registration placement. On return to the university you’ll be able to select a pharmaceutical subject of special interest to you to study alongside the core teaching. In your final year, under the supervision of an academic working at the cutting-edge of pharmaceutical science or practice, you’ll complete your final year project. Some examples of the areas your research could focus on include: - Novel drug delivery systems - Understanding the cellular response to drug molecules - Synthesis of molecules as potential new drugs - Evaluation of Pharmacy services in hospitals - After completing your project you’ll undertake the second of your two pre-registration placements. After which you’ll graduate and become a fully qualified pharmacist, providing you have passed all of your associated modules and assessments, including the GPhC pre-registration assessment. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.

UEA has a great atmosphere which makes both studying and socialising easy. The facilities on campus range from the library to the bar and from shops to accommodation which means that it is possible to live on campus without venturing away but at the same time the city of Norwich is a lovely place to explore. The university had the largest natural environment in the UK which includes a lake and woodlands which are relaxing to explore.
