Study a Pharmacy degree in the UK in 2024

Pharmacy is a medical and scientific field that looks at producing, preparing, dispensing and reviewing medications. As a pharmacist you are responsible for the safe and effective supply of medications to patients. You will also be required to give advice about how to take medications, as well as the relationship between different medications and potential side effects. You might work in a hospital or primary care setting, or in the community in a local pharmacy.

Graduates of a degree in pharmacy can normally expect to be able to go straight into a job as a pharmacist. Depending on the country in which you choose to work, you may need to gain any relevant professional accreditation or qualifications on top of your degree. Some universities will include these qualifications within their programme offerings.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, with potential for some practical lab sessions. Depending on your course, you may also be given the opportunity to take part in a work placement. Modules you study could include:

  • Health Sciences
  • Medicine Interactions
  • Immunity and Infection
  • Human Anatomy and Physiology
  • Pathology and Pharmacology
