University of Brighton Pharmacy
Pharmacists are experts in medicines and how they work. They play an important role in providing healthcare to patients in many different settings – the community, hospitals, industry and academia – using their clinical expertise to ensure the safe supply and use of medicines by the public.
The MPharm qualification is the only undergraduate UK degree acceptable for registration with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) – the UK’s independent regulator for pharmaceutical practice.
Our MPharm programme is taught through a series of case studies that bring together the science of pharmacy with the needs of the patient. In each year of the course, it offers placements in community and hospital settings so you can gain the experience you need to successfully enter the workplace.
You will benefit from inter-professional learning opportunities with Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS), and from teaching informed by our extensive industry links and world-leading research.
Guaranteed interview scheme for medicine
All of our Pharmacy MPharm students who fulfil the eligibility criteria are guaranteed an interview with the Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) if they want to pursue a degree in medicine.
