Course summary

**About This Course**Our five-year MPharm degree with Placement will see you graduate as a fully-qualified pharmacist on passing of the degree and the General Pharmaceutical Council pre-registration exam at the end of year 5. The first three years will be almost the same as the MPharm programme with only very subtle differences. In your fourth and fifth year, in addition to two semesters at University, you’ll undertake two integrated six-month periods of pre-registration placement training, which on successful completion will entitle you to register to practice soon after graduation. Designed with overseas students in mind, the course will enable you to carry out all of the above under a single student visa.Our Pharmacy degree is designed to help you develop as both a scientist and a practitioner, with embedded practical and experiential learning throughout to optimise your development. You’ll get to work with patients, developing your clinical skills to maximise your employability after graduation.**Overview**Our five-year course has been designed as a modification to our four-year MPharm course, which has a global reputation for exceptional, innovative teaching, backed by world-class research.Designed for international students, the first three years of this integrated course will largely follow the same structure as our four-year programme. In each of your final two years, however, you’ll undertake a six-month placement: one in a hospital setting and the other in a community pharmacy setting.Our course structure means you retain your student status for the duration of your course, removing the need to seek a separate Tier 2 visa for pre-registration training after graduation.During your five years you’ll focus on practical experience in both the lab and clinical settings, and cultivate professional skills on placements from the very beginning. So you’ll benefit from extensive real-world training, and start to build a professional portfolio before you have even graduated.With support from leading researchers and practitioners, you’ll hone your knowledge of chemistry and biology, and learn how to apply it to drug design, drug delivery and pharmacology to ultimately optimise patient care. Our course covers everything to need to be a pharmacist including the following topics:- Disease causes, prevention and treatments- Drug design and discovery- Mechanisms of drug action- The science of medicine formulation- Improving patient care through medicines optimisation- Precision medicine- The role of the pharmacist- Professionalism and ethics- Preparation for the workplaceAs well as exceptional training in the core requirements, you’ll cover a broad range of subjects integrating healthcare and science, enabling you to identify and specialise in the areas you find most interesting. And you’ll have opportunities to establish links with organisations where you might hope to secure future employment.Whatever your focus, your course will reflect the most up-to-date developments in pharmaceutical science and the most recent advances in clinical practice and is accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC).This course is intended for international students that wish to become a registered Pharmacist in the UK. If you wish to register in your home country we recommend you check this course is acceptable for that purpose in your country.UK and EU students should apply for our four-year MPharm programme (B230).**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
