**About This Course**
Develop your clinical skills and study the underpinning science of medicines and health at one of the UKâs leading Pharmacy Schools.
Our fiveâyear Pharmacy with a Foundation Year degree prepares you for university-level study if you donât have the required qualifications for direct entry onto the four-year MPharm course.
The degree is designed to help you develop as both a scientist and a practitioner, with embedded practical and experiential learning throughout to optimise your development. You will get to work with patients, developing your clinical skills to maximise your employability after graduation.
Our innovative teaching methods include problem- and team-based learning and practical assessments. You will also benefit from studying alongside students from the other medical, healthcare and nursing professions, working closely with other disciplines, just as you will in your career.
All of the above will prepare you for a role that often commands a competitive salary and has excellent career prospects.
The foundation year of this five-year course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to move on to study our MPharm degree. Youâll not only focus on fundamental skills in mathematics, biology and chemistry but undertake a bespoke Pharmacy skills module. You will explore teaching methods utilised throughout the MPharm and learn some of the underlying principles of medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutical formulation and pharmacy practice.
Our MPharm degree programme has a global reputation for exceptional, innovative teaching, backed by world-class research. You will 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. This means that you will benefit from extensive real-world training, and start to build your own professional portfolio before you have even graduated.
With support from our friendly staff, who are leading researchers and practitioners, you will enhance your knowledge of chemistry and biology, and learn how to apply it to drug design, drug delivery and pharmacology, in order to optimise patient care. Our course covers everything needed to become an outstanding person-centred practitioner, and includes the following topics:
â¢ Communication and consultation skills
â¢ Disease causes, prevention and treatments
â¢ Drug design and discovery
â¢ Medicines optimisation
â¢ Precision medicine
â¢ Professionalism and ethics
â¢ Reflective practice
As well as exceptional training in the core requirements, you will cover a broad range of subjects integrating healthcare and science, enabling you to identify and specialise in the areas you find most interesting. You will also 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. The MPharm is accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC).
