Study Pharmacy

Pharmacy student in laboratory

The University of Birmingham has been successful in achieving Step 3 of the accreditation process with the General Pharmaceutical Council. We are excited to be delivering this high quality, innovative and professionally aligned course from October 2013 within our newly built teaching laboratories. In line with the accreditation process for all new Schools of Pharmacy, we will be visited by the GPhC annually until we reach step 7 of the GPhC accreditation process, when our first cohort of students graduate.

The pharmacy undergraduate curriculum complements existing study programmes in the College and across the University.

There are already parallels in some of the science teaching on the Biomedical Science BSc course and pharmacy will also offer inter-professional educational experiences with Medicine and Surgery MBChB, Nursing and Physiotherapy programmes to explore issues of team working and communication to enhance patient safety and care.

Study programmes are being developed under guidance from the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and follow the principles of the Department of Health’s Medical Education England’s, Modernising Pharmacy Careers which proposes a new approach to pharmacist undergraduate education.
