On graduating from Pharmacy courses, most students go on to do a foundation year in a hospital or community setting to become practising pharmacists. Those graduating from Pharmacology courses are well-suited to research careers or further study.
Opportunities range from patient-facing clinical roles within the community, hospitals or primary care, to research and drug development roles within industry and academia.
Many graduates also return to the University for our postgraduate courses. Recent Bath Pharmacy graduate employers and foundation year training providers include:
- NHS (hospital and primary care settings)
- Alliance Boots
- Day Lewis
Throughout the course, you’ll be exposed to different practical lab techniques in dedicated pharmacology labs. On graduation, you’ll be well-suited to a research career in industry or prepared to continue your studies to a higher level.

- Research Assistant at a university
- Healthcare Analyst at a data analytics company
- PhD student at a London research facility
All graduates from 2024 will be independent prescribers at registration, after the successful completion of degree and a GPhC foundation year.
