Prospective students


The largest undergraduate course in the school is the four-year M.Pharm (Hons) degree which leads, after pre-registration training and examination, to membership of the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). The school is also the home to BSc Honours courses in Biomedical Science, Ecology, Pharmaceutical and Chemical Sciences and Biological Sciences, and the new MChem/BSc (Hons) Chemistry courses. In addition, the school has a significant input to the biology and chemistry areas of the university's BSc Honours Environmental Sciences.

Courses are available at various levels including:

  • Foundation degree
  • Undergraduate
  • Postgraduate

Professional relevance

We develop courses in close consultation with industry and professional bodies such as the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences to ensure that our graduates have the range of skills employers are looking for and many include professional accreditations. Work placements are an intrinsic part of our MPharm programme providing further chances for students to develop skills and make industry contacts and, in collaboration with the National Health Service, the school prides itself on delivering competency-based programmes aimed at practicing pharmacists such as our Applied Therapeutics course.
