Our MPharm degree programme has a global reputation for exceptional, innovative teaching, backed by world-class research. Youâll focus on practical experience in the lab and clinical settings, and cultivate professional skills on placements from the very beginning of this four-year course. So youâll benefit from extensive real-world training, and start to build your own professional portfolio before youâve even graduated.
With support from leading researchers and practitioners, youâll 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, youâll cover a broad range of subjects integrating healthcare and science, enabling you to identify and specialise in the areas you find most interesting. And youâll have opportunities to establish links with organisations where you might hope to secure future employment.
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 UK and EU students that wish to later register as a Pharmacist in the UK. If you wish to register overseas we recommend you check this course is acceptable for this purpose in that country.
Our Pharmacy degree is designed to help you develop as both a scientist and a practitioner, giving you as much hands-on experience through practical and experiential learning as possible. Youâll get to work with real patients, developing your communication skills and maximising the benefits of every prescription. And youâll be taught about clinical and pharmaceutical management.
Our course covers topics in an integrated way, focused on different diseases. Its carefully structured programme includes a number of compulsory topics on essential pharmaceutical theory and methodology. During your four 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
- Cardiovascular disease
- Renal disease
- Gastrointestinal disease
- Infectious diseases
In your final year youâll bring together everything youâve learnt and apply it to complex patient situations. Youâll focus on the two pharmaceutical subjects that best reflect your strengths and interests. Then, under the supervision of an academic working at the cutting-edge of pharmaceutical science or practice, youâll complete your final year project either in the UK or abroad at one of our European partner organisations.
A few examples of the areas your research could focus on:
- Novel drug delivery systems
- Understanding the cellular response to drug molecules
- Synthesis of molecules as potential new drugs
- Evaluation of Pharmacy services in hospitals
Course details are subject to change. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website: **www.uea.ac.uk**
In Year 1, you will cover the foundations of pharmacy, undertaking modules such as Life Sciences Chemistry and Foundations in Pharmacy Practice. In your second year, you will engage in more complex topics such as Neurophysiology, Synaptic Pharmacology and Endocrinology. In Year 3, you will develop your pharmaceutical and clinical knowledge undertaking modules such as optimising Patient Care through Pharmacy and Evidence-Based Care of Cardiovascular and Renal Disease. In your final year, you will be able to use the previously learned knowledge in complex situations for the benefit of patients. Modules include Pharmaceuticals Research Project and Clinical Therapeutics of the Central Nervous System.
