About Pharmacy at Swansea University

Modern Healthcare is delivered by an interdisciplinary team and increasingly Pharmacists are delivering enhanced and new clinical services across healthcare settings. Our Pharmacy Degree recognises these new and advanced roles and integrates sciences and practice to prepare students to meet the challenges of the changing face of Pharmacy. 

During your four-year integrated Master’s Degree (MPharm) in Pharmacy, you will follow a curriculum designed to reflect the way Pharmacists approach patients and how patients present to Pharmacists. We combine fundamental and complex scientific principles with how it is applied to give you a clear understanding of the practice of Pharmacy.

What students think about Swansea University

    Lanvell Blake, Jamaica (MSc Public Health and Health Promotion)

    Testimonial from Lanvell Blake, Jamaica (MSc Public Health and Health Promotion), student at Swansea University

    Where are you from?

    The biggest, little dot in the world, Jamaica

    Where did you study (which institution or school) before coming to Swansea?

    The University of the West Indies, Mona Campus (Kingston, Jamaica)

    Why did choose Swansea University?

    Who passes an opportunity to study at a beachfront campus? Not me. For me, it was how accommodating my Programme Director, Dr. Ruth Hopkins and Helen Lewis, Allocation and Administration Manager were prior to my departure to Wales. You could imagine the “moving to a new country” jitters that I experienced, but their communication skills made the process an easy transition.

    What do you do in your free time?

    ParkRun. Swansea Bay parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5K timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. They encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability– this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is free.

    What has been the highlight of your time in Swansea?

    My Swansea experience can be summed up in two words- The People. I think some of the most memorable moments of this experience came from the interaction with the people here in Swansea. Whether on campus, volunteering at Matthew’s House (local foodbank charity) or a random stroll through the city. The hospitality that you get from people in Swansea is top tier. The friendships I’ve made, the sharing of cultures and food, the laughter on the beach- all those experiences were made with the people I met.

    I previously studied in Brookhouse Schools Kenya, before coming to Swansea. 

    Why did you choose Swansea University?

    The reason I chose Swansea University is because I wanted to experience both the amazing opportunity to study and attend lectures during the day and in between breaks, take a stroll down the beach and enjoy the waves of the ocean and the cool crisp air in between lectures. It’s the best of both of worlds really. 

    What do you do in your free time?

    During my free time I like to listen to music, and do photography 

    What has been the highlight of your time in Swansea?

    My highlights in Swansea has definitely been the fact that it’s been like second home to me it’s peaceful and quiet with amazing and friendly residents and you absolutely can’t miss out on the nights in Wind Street, there’s always a story to tell.

    Testimonial from Aleksandra Pietrzykowska, Poland (Economics) , student at Swansea University

    Where are you from?

    I'm from the central part of Poland. I was raised in the suburbs of capital city, Warsaw.

    Where did you study (which institution or school) before coming to Swansea?

    Before coming to Swansea, I had done high school in my hometown. Moreover, over the summer 2k17, I had done language school in Plymouth.

    Why did choose Swansea University?

    I chose Swansea uni because I had checked location of the city and was in love with this. Moreover, had heard that university has a very high level in delivering teaching and is on the top in many rankings. Furthermore, fact that I was supposed to study on a brand-new campus helped me make my mind.

    What do you do in your free time?

    In my spare time, I am working as a waitress in local cafe. Also sometimes hang out with friends outside the campus. We like eating vegan meals out either on the beach and Mumbles area. 

    What has been the highlight of your time in Swansea?

    The main highlight of my time in Swansea, is decision to become a vegan. On my first year, I got to know few people that follow non-diary diet. After that I made the best decision in my life, started an adventure as a vegan.
