University of Huddersfield Pharmacy

If you are thinking of becoming a Pharmacist, continuing to post-graduate studies in Pharmacy or pursuing research in Pharmacy then you are in the right place.

Welcome to the first the step of your journey. If you decide to study pharmacy your journey may last for the next 40 years! A Pharmacy degree (MPharm) is just one of the requirements along the way to becoming a registered Pharmacist. An MPharm is the only degree which will ultimately allow you to register and practice as a pharmacist.

At Huddersfield you will be part of a small cohort where the academics and your fellow students will be able to get to know you on an individual basis and the University ethos of small group teaching will allow us to help you to develop from a student into a Healthcare Professional over the 4 years that you spend with us.

In common with all other Schools of Pharmacy, Huddersfield has external accreditation of its course by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). As an MPharm graduate, you will be eligible to complete a one year pre-registration placement and then take the GPhC’s registration examination to become a registered pharmacist. If you have any queries about accreditation then please email the admissions tutor.

Many members of the Pharmacy staff are also research active with projects covering pharmaceutical manufacture, formulation and delivery and pharmacy practice.

Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences

Research activity in Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is expanding rapidly as a result of strategic investment by the University, as well as the development of important internal and external collaborators. We undertake world class research across a range of disciplines – from identifying targets for new drugs to combat important diseases like depression through to developing and improving drug delivery methods by inhalation and other routes. Research within the Pharmaceutical Sciences can be split into themes: Pharmaceutics, Material Sciences, Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics.
