This programme is accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) to ensure it delivers the highest possible standards for education and training in a rapidly changing profession.
Our degree programme is fully integrated and is organised around therapeutic themes, with a focus on evidence-based medicine from the outset of the programme. We will help you develop the practical and professional skills of a pharmacist, with a grounding in both science and practice that will enable you to make informed decisions as a future pharmacist. 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.
At the end of your degree, in order to register as a pharmacist, you will have to successfully complete one year of postgraduate training and pass the GPhC registration assessment. The Leicester School of Pharmacy has dedicated support days to help you prepare for your assessment, even after you have graduated.
