Master of Pharmacy Degree (MPharm)
Our four year MPharm course provides a broad based, scientifically and clinically strong education in pharmacy.
It encompasses a large degree of integration of science and practice that will equip you with the skills needed to enter all areas of the profession and help you adapt to changes that may occur during your career.
By the end of the four years, you will be conversant with the professional aspects of pharmacy, able to communicate effectively with patients and other healthcare professionals and able to appreciate the professional and social role of the pharmacist.
The best way to get a feel for what it's like to study here is to come and visit us on one of our open days.
Fees for entry in 2017 have not yet been set. For entry in 2016 the tuition fees were £9,000 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2017 entry.
We work hard to ensure that our course can be completed without significant additional study costs over and above the tuition fee. The two areas where additional costs can be incurred are travel to clinical placements and reading. In both of these situations, we seek to ensure that additional costs are kept as low as possible. The University defines low cost as an annual cost which is no more than 1% of the annual home undergraduate fee.
