Course Summary:
This programme will aim to bridge the gap between healthcare and the science behind pharmacy and will address the educational needs of pharmacy assistants. In the early years of the programme the emphasis will be placed on the molecular science fields, while in the latter years the health/clinical aspects of the programme will become the predominant theme. Laboratory work will comprise a significant element of the programme; you will develop skills across the traditional subject boundaries equipping you to meet the challenges associated with practical work in the pharmacy sector. You will also develop a range of transferable skills. The Honours sandwich programme offers the possibility of a year’s work experience between years 3 and 4. Study abroad opportunities are available. Graduates are expected to have employment opportunities with organisations in pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors in Scotland and internationally. Roles include health advice/consultancy, sales and marketing, pharmacy support and clinical research trials on new drugs.
