Pharmacy (MPharm) 2024

Course description:

Our MPharm programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and experience you’ll need to embark on a career as a Pharmacist. Our School is internationally renowned for the outstanding quality of our teaching and research.

Undertaking the MPharm at Cardiff University means studying at one of the top schools of Pharmacy in the UK.

Today's pharmacists are not only experts in drug discovery and delivery, they play a direct role in improving patients’ health and wellbeing.  Many now prescribe medicines independently of a doctor. We are proud to train the pharmacists of the future and, as the role of the pharmacist evolves, so too does our programme to reflect these exciting developments.

Above all else, we strive to ensure that our graduates are ready for the next step in their career and the many opportunities that await them.

That’s why 95% of our students who sat the 2022 General Pharmaceutical Council’s registration exam passed first-time, higher than the overall national average of 82%.  For many years, 100% of our graduates who have applied for pre-registration pharmacy training have been successful in securing a training place.

On this four-year internationally respected programme you’ll learn about the discovery and development of new drugs and explore their chemical, physicochemical, pharmacological and toxicological properties. You’ll also study the clinical uses of medicines and the role of the pharmacist in improving patient outcomes as part of interprofessional healthcare teams.

You’ll learn about the underlying pathophysiology of many human diseases, and how the use of medicines can halt, slow the progression of, or reverse disease processes.

You’ll be taught all of this by our team of world-leading academic staff and pharmacist practitioners who have an extensive range of expertise. In fact, we ranked joint first School of Pharmacy nationally in the most recent Research Excellence Framework. This is a direct result of the quality, and cutting-edge nature of our research projects.

Some of your learning will take place alongside students from other health care disciplines as part of our interprofessional education and you’ll also be given the opportunity to carry out a range of placements in both traditional and role-emerging settings including community and hospital pharmacies, GP practices and specialist health and social care settings. This will provide you with invaluable experience on the front line of health care provision.

Our commitment to adapt to the changing needs of the pharmacy profession

Our MPharm programme is under continual review as part of our ongoing commitment to enhance our course to reflect changes in pharmacy practice and ensure that our graduates have the skills, knowledge and experience they need to continue on the next step in their pharmacy careers. This review is underpinned by the standards for pharmacy education and training produced by our regulatory body, the General Pharmaceutical Council.
