We are delighted to be a partner with Middle East University (MEU) in Amman, Jordan. In 2019, both Strathclyde and MEU agreed formally to embark on a 3+2 MPharm degree delivered jointly by SIPBS and the college of Pharmacy. The aim is to provide the highest level of training for the next generation of Jordanian Pharmacists.   Students, starting in September 2019, will follow the Strathclyde curriculum and spend 3 years at MEU and then 2 years at SIPBS.
