Pharmacy with Health Foundation Year - Keele University

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. The course will provide you with the requisite science knowledge, enhance your study skills and give you an introduction to the employability skills required by health professionals. The Health Foundation Year is a well established and successful course which offers progression onto the full range of health degrees at Keele. The Health Foundation Year offers an opportunity for students to enter a degree course in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences who do not meet the necessary criteria for direct entry. This is often because they have not studied the subjects required or because they have gained non-traditional qualifications. The programme of modules is tailored to the student’s chosen degree route. After you have completed your Health Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Pharmacy programme. You’ll benefit from innovative and inclusive teaching, state-of-the-art facilities, whilst gaining practical experience through placements in hospital, community and industrial settings. The skills you gain from this course will prepare you for your future career. Pharmacists play a key role in many aspects of the design, development, delivery, and optimisation of the use of medicines. They are clinicians and scientists, with strong management and communication skills. These skills ensure that pharmacists are highly effective in community pharmacy, hospitals, GP surgeries, the pharmaceutical industry, academia, regulatory affairs and public health. Pharmacists promote the safe and effective use of medicines and ensure the highest quality patient care. Often, they are the first point of information for the public and other healthcare professionals, and as such must be effective communicators. All aspects of the Pharmacy programme are taught in dedicated, well- equipped facilities using a wide variety of teaching methods. Placements form an important learning experience throughout all years of the course giving you the opportunity to place your learning in context within different working environments.
