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.

"When it comes to the MPharm degree, the University of Reading was always my first choice and I can definitely say the correct choice, from first year to my future graduation. With amazing lecturers and an engaging course, the University of Reading goes above and beyond to help guide you from nervous first year to a confident pre-reg student with a bright future ahead of them."
