Course content

The Veterinary Pharmacy courses at Harper Adams University are run in conjunction with the Veterinary Pharmacy Education Programme (VPEP), incorporate the AMTRA Suitably Qualified Person (SQP) qualification, and Harper Adams is an Accredited Training Provider for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS). The Veterinary Pharmacy qualifications are intended for pharmacists and animal science graduates involved, or wishing to develop an involvement, in the animal health industry and in the supply and use of animal medicinal products.

Pharmacy technicians and other pharmacy or merchant support staff may study the taught modules on the University Diploma which also incorporates appropriate SQP qualifications.

The full postgraduate programme would typically be delivered on a part-time basis in a blended learning format and studied over two academic years. Students studying all taught modules enables the completion of a Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) and those continuing to MSc complete the Masters Dissertation. The Master Dissertation is typically completed within an individually negotiated timescale over a one to two-year period.
