MPharm undergraduate degree
During the MPharm undergraduate degree you will learn how the body works, how medicines affect it, and how these medicines are designed. You will gain hands-on experience on placements and in our Clinical Skills Suite, and develop the clinical and professional skills required for optimal use of medicines for patient benefit.
This degree is accredited by the pharmacy regulator, the General Pharmaceutical Council, and has recently been redesigned to reflect the changing roles of pharmacists.
