Pharmacists are at the front-line of the modern healthcare system. Experts in medicines design and use, they play a critical role in improving patient health and wellbeing.
The content and structure of our MPharm courses will reflect the revised standards for pharmacists training set by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) from October 2023. This is shown in more detail in the course structure section of course pages.
Our courses will give you a unique knowledge of both the scientific development and clinical use of medicines, equipping you with the skills for a rewarding career in pharmacy or pharmaceutical research.
