Course content

The Pharmacy Practice MSc helps registered pharmacists working in community, primary or secondary care practice develop the knowledge and skills to meet the challenges of developments in pharmacy practice.

This programme will equip you to provide pharmaceutical care to patients, manage your personal and professional development and introduce new services to the workplace.

You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of techniques for evaluating and managing the risk associated with prescribing, supplying and administering medicines to ensure patient safety.

Our focus on work-based learning and assessment links your study directly to your practice, whilst flexible modules allow you to develop skills in the areas of practice best for you.

The dissertation project gives you chance to evaluate current issues and research in pharmacy and examine an area of pharmacy practice under the supervision of leading researchers.
