Find out about how we'll be delivering our courses in 2020.
The PGDip Pharmacy Practice is a workplace-based programme, aligned to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society's Foundation Pharmacy Framework, which allows pharmacists to develop their clinical and service skills.
This collaborative programme between local NHS pharmacy services and the University provides pharmacy practice training that is responsive to the UK government's national objectives.
Training is aligned to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Foundation Pharmacy Framework, and your learning will reflect the local context in which pharmacists work, and the changing needs of patients.
This is a workplace-based learning programme and placements are part of your employment prior to enrolment. You will be taught through blended learning which combines face-to-face with online study.
You may be sponsored by your employer or may choose to self-fund. If you are being sponsored you should ensure funding is in place prior to submitting an application as places cannot be held in the event of funding not being secured.
There is flexibility within the programme. You may choose to exit the programme with the PGCert and/or take a break prior to starting the PGDip. View our PGCert Pharmacy Practice page for more information on the qualification.
The programme is part of the Joint Programmes Board (JPB) partners group and there is flexible movement of students who complete the PGCert to study in other local HEIs.
