Degree Overview

Bradford’s innovative and award-winning degree course, delivered predominately by Team-Based Learning (TBL), has been designed by pharmacists, educators, students and employers to ensure that you will graduate not only with the necessary knowledge and skills of a pharmacy graduate, but also with the confidence, communication, team-working, and problem-solving skills needed to secure employment. Your classes have been designed to simulate the workplace and you will work in small teams to solve real-world problems, many of which are brought into the classroom from pharmacy practice by our team of pharmacist teacher-practitioners.

On graduation you will then need to successfully complete a 1-year pre-registration period in order to become a qualified pharmacist. Alternatively you can choose our unique 5-year Mpharm programme, which enables you to undertake your pre-registration training as part of the programme. This means you will leave Bradford as a qualified pharmacist, pending successful completion of the GPhC registration exam.

Whichever one you choose, you can be assured that our MPharm courses have been specially designed so that you leave us fully prepared for contemporary pharmacy practice, and with the skills and confidence to succeed and achieve your full potential in your future employment.
