Postgraduate Study at the School of Pharmacy


The School of Pharmacy offers a range of programmes to advance your skills and progress your pharmacy career.

Our postgraduate programmes concentrate on two main areas: pharmaceutical sciences and clinical pharmacy practice.

The pharmaceutical sciences qualifications prepare students for roles in research and development, mainly within the pharmaceutical industry, while the clinical pharmacy practice qualifications are for registered pharmacists wishing to move into advanced practice roles, including pharmacist prescribing.

Postgraduate programmes offered by the School of Pharmacy

All postgraduate programmes are designated as '700 level' courses, which have several distinctive features. They are centred in a culture of research and theory, designed to extend prior knowledge and skill in both breadth and depth and to promote deep learning. More importantly, they place upon the student the major responsibility for:

  • critically evaluating evidence, findings and discussions in the literature
  • applying knowledge and skill to new situations.

Students are expected to engage in active tutorial and workshop sessions, to lead on selected topics and to bring forward their queries and relevant practice experience.
