Pharmacy with a Foundation Year

The foundation year of this five-year course is designed to arm you with the skills and knowledge you need to move on to study our MPharm degree. You’ll not only focus on fundamental skills in mathematics, biology and chemistry, but also specialise in principles in pharmacy. Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year, you’ll continue on the full MPharm Pharmacy four-year course. Our MPharm degree programme has a global reputation for exceptional, innovative teaching, backed by world-class research. You’ll focus on practical experience in the lab and clinical settings, and cultivate professional skills on placements from the very beginning of this four-year course. So you’ll benefit from extensive real-world training, and start to build your own professional portfolio before you’ve even graduated. With support from leading researchers and practitioners, you’ll hone your knowledge of chemistry and biology, and learn how to apply it to drug design, drug delivery and pharmacology to ultimately optimise patient care. As well as exceptional training in the core requirements, you’ll cover a broad range of subjects integrating healthcare and science, enabling you to identify and specialise in the areas you find most interesting. And you’ll have opportunities to establish links with organisations where you might hope to secure future employment. Whatever your focus, your course will reflect the most up-to-date developments in pharmaceutical science and the most recent advances in clinical practice and the MPharm degree is accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). This course is intended for UK and EU students that wish to later register as a Pharmacist in the UK. If you wish to register overseas we recommend you check this course is acceptable for this purpose in that country. **Course Structure** Our five-year course follows a carefully structured program. In year one – your foundation year – you’ll focus on developing fundamental skills in mathematics, biology, chemistry and pharmacy, which are needed to move onto our MPharm degree. From year two you’ll develop as both a scientist and a practitioner, gaining as much hands-on experience through practical and experiential learning as possible. You’ll get to work with real patients, developing your communication skills and maximising the benefits of every prescription. And you’ll be taught about clinical and pharmaceutical management. Our course covers topics in an integrated way, focused on different diseases. Its carefully structured programme includes a number of compulsory topics on essential pharmaceutical theory and methodology. During your four years you will cover areas including: * Life sciences chemistry * Cells, physiology and pharmacology * Pharmaceutics and dosage form design * Drug design and mechanisms of drug actions * Neurology * Endocrinology * Immunology * Cancer * Cardiovascular disease * Renal disease * Gastrointestinal disease * Infectious diseases In your final year you’ll bring together everything you’ve learnt and apply it to complex patient situations. You’ll focus on the two pharmaceutical subjects that best reflect your strengths and interests. Then, under the supervision of an academic working at the cutting-edge of pharmaceutical science or practice, you’ll complete your final year project either in the UK or abroad at one of our European partner organisations. A few examples of the areas your research could focus on: * Novel drug delivery systems * Understanding the cellular response to drug molecules * Synthesis of molecules as potential new drugs * Evaluation of Pharmacy services in hospitals For details on the years of study beyond the Foundation Year, please see the course pages specific to the MPharm Pharmacy. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
