With a focus on developing the practical and professional skills of a pharmacist, you will develop a grounding in both science and practice that will enable you to make informed decisions in practice. This means that as a graduate you leave us with a degree that prepares you for employability in all areas of pharmacy – community, hospital, primary care or industry.
