To become a UK-registered pharmacist after the four-year MPharm, you must successfully complete a one-year pre-registration training period after graduation. We will provide support to help you secure this. The vast majority of our students have places arranged well before graduation. For more information about registration, please see the pharmacy regulations website. The school also provides support at the end of your pre-registration year to help you prepare for your GPhC examination.
Career opportunities for pharmacists are plentiful and varied. While most pharmacists are based in hospital or community pharmacies, others work in areas such as clinical trials, quality assurance and formulation in the pharmaceutical industry, or in academic pharmacy and scientific positions within the NHS. Recent professional career developments include working with GPs and providing prescribing advice.
Our four-year Masters in Pharmacy (MPharm) course has full accreditation from the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). We are currently working towards accreditation for our five-year course.
