What is Pharmacy?

Pharmacists are experts in medicines and drug therapy. It is a professional role requiring in-depth knowledge from a broad range of chemical, biological and professional disciplines. Pharmacy requires a range of skills and knowledge from disease-causing micro-organisms, synthesis and manufacture of drugs, and actions of drugs in the body, to professional aspects such as dispensing and ethics.

How you are taught

You will experience an integrated range of teaching and learning styles – from traditional lectures and tutorials to practical classes and workshops. Our courses develop a range of transferable skills, with the ability to work to the highest professional and ethical standards. A supportive environment is essential for your development and you will be allocated a personal tutor to help with personal and academic issues. We also have a Learning Community Forum that provides an opportunity for you to discuss course-related issues with academic staff.

Career prospects

Our Masters of Pharmacy programme is your passport to a pharmacy career in many countries around the word, including the UK, Malaysia and Singapore. Graduates of the MPharm may become pharmacists in hospitals and within the community. Those pursuing a career as an industrial pharmacist may work in drug discovery and development, clinical trials, quality assurance, regulatory affairs, product registration, and marketing. MPharm graduates may also pursue careers in academia or as medical journalists or scientific writers.
