Course summary

Overview

Medway School of Pharmacy is a unique partnership between the University of Kent and the University of Greenwich. The School has achieved full accreditation from the General Pharmaceutical Council and is recognised as an established school of pharmacy.

Our five-year programme is based on three interlinked themes: practitioner and patient; medicines design and manufacture; the patient; and disease and drug action.

The foundation year helps you adapt to the higher education system and to develop and embed key academic and employability skills.

Our degree programme

Our curriculum is outcomes-focused and designed to prepare you for your future professional practice. In your Foundation Year you are introduced to the foundational level of chemistry for pharmacy, molecules, cells and body systems. We also teach you basic numeracy and academic study skills needed for successful progression on the MPharm programme.

On the MPharm, you study basic and applied science as well as clinical and professional practice, all in the context of patient care. We teach core themes of biological sciences, chemistry and drug delivery as part of integrated modules based around body systems including brain and psychiatry; heart and circulatory system; and the endocrine system.

We make extensive use of tutorials, workshops and practical laboratory classes as well as in-house simulation-based learning to foster your understanding and development.

In your final year, you conduct a sustained research project about a topic you feel particularly passionate about.

Study resources

The Medway School of Pharmacy houses a state-of-the-art, simulated environment for a hospital ward and fully equipped pharmacy. We also have a clinical skills laboratory in which you can perform some of your own research.

Our extensive network of teacher practitioners is there to provide guidance for your studies and professional development.

Kent’s Student Learning Advisory Centre also offers useful workshops on the Medway campus on topics like essay writing and academic referencing.

Teaching & Assessment

Teaching is by lectures, seminars, workshops and practical laboratory classes, which take up approximately two thirds of the programme. Placements form a key part of the teaching programme.

A variety of assessment methods are used including practical dispensing examinations, objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs), presentations (individual and group), written reports, interim assessments and end-of-year written examinations.
