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 proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. During this course, as well as innovative teaching practice and state-of-the-art facilities, you will gain invaluable work experience to prepare you for your future career. Integrated Master’s awards are delivered through a programme that combines study at the level of a Bachelor’s degree with honours to study at Master’s level. The 5 year MPharm (with Integrated Training Year) shares the same core topics of the four year MPharm course. The fourth year of the MPharm course is split across years four and five, to provide opportunity for the Integrated Training Year. Keele has excellent links with the local health service; dedicated teaching facilities; modern, well-equipped laboratories and analytical facilities; an enthusiastic, multidisciplinary teaching team; and a stimulating research environment. In common with all other UK Schools of Pharmacy, Keele requires external accreditation of its course by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). The 4 Year MPharm programme achieved full accreditation in May 2010 and we were successfully reaccredited in December 2014. The 5 Year course for international students is largely based on this. Pharmacists are the experts in drug discovery, development, preparation and usage of medicines. They are both professional scientists and qualified healthcare practitioners. Pharmacists work in hospitals, in the community, and in the pharmaceutical industry and also in a wide variety of other roles including academia, regulatory affairs, primary care, and the armed forces. Please be aware that this course is only available to international students. The School of Pharmacy is working towards accreditation and the course will be provisionally accredited until the programme receives full accreditation.
