How you'll learn
Teaching and research at the Reading School of Pharmacy is delivered by a team of dynamic academics and pharmacists who are experts in their field. Our academics are passionate about teaching and learning, and will support you through your MPharm to ensure you get the most out of your undergraduate degree to excel in a Pharmacy career after you graduate.
"For me, teaching is a partnership with students, sharing our enthusiasm for pharmacy and the drive to succeed. I love seeing the development of students from learners to experts throughout their pharmacy degree and their pre-registration year. I am committed to giving students the best education, through evidence-based practice and using new teaching innovations."
teaching which plays to your strengths
We use a range of methods when teaching the MPharm undergraduate degree to help you reach your full learning potential.
Our teaching methods include team-based learning, placements, inter-professional workshops, and case-based learning sessions. Our interactive approach helps you develop into an independent learner.
"Integrated learning and case studies allowed me to not only learn theory but practice what I had learnt. I was able to make the connections between chemical, pharmacological, physiological and clinical knowledge. Relating science and theory to a real-life patient in a case study is extremely beneficial. The high number of workshops and opportunities during the course really helped me to develop my practical approach and prepare me for life as a pharmacist."
Gain hands-on experience with research opportunities
During your undergraduate studies, you will have the opportunity to work with staff on pharmacy research projects. This includes opportunities through the University Research Opportunities Programme (UROP), ERASMUS+ and our links with the pharmaceutical industry.
The ERASMUS+ programme gives students the opportunity to gain funded international study experience at one of our European partner universities. These currently include the University of Padova (Italy), the University of Bologna (Italy, Rimini Campus) and will include top universities in the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Germany. During your stay abroad, students are supported by academics from both Reading and the partner university.
These opportunities allow you to directly contribute to the creation of knowledge, build new skills, and to strengthen the link between teaching and research.
"I gained hands-on research experience through the UoR Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP). My research project findings were published to an academic journal and presented to an audience of pharmacists and academics, including the president of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society."
