MPharm Pharmacy Degree
Re-accredited in 2006 by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, the undergraduate Integrated MPharm programme lasts four years. This Master's-level course has a greater workload than a four-year Honours degree and certain advanced courses in the final years are assessed with a pass mark of 50%. Personal counsellors monitor students' progress and help with any problems, ensuring that the vast majority of our students successfully complete this strongly academic course.
The School of Pharmacy is an integral part of the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. The School enjoys an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research and trains over 100 home and international students each year in the profession of Pharmacy.
The 4 year course is accredited by the GPhC and combines science and professional practice covering 4 main themes:
- Pharmacy Practice
- Physiology and Pharmacology
- Formulation and Drug Delivery
- Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry
The School of Pharmacy benefits from high-quality, dedicated facilities for delivering the MPharm. These include a dispensary with consulting area, clean room facility and pharmaceutical processing and analysis suites enabling students to gain first hand experience of the full range of professional pharmacy activities in a comfortable, modern training environment.
We have close links with a variety of external organisations through joint appointments, teacher practitioners and visiting and honorary staff. This ensures that students have regular contact with staff working in key sectors of pharmacy including NHS/pharmacy chains/pharmaceutical industry.
