Study Pharmacy Masters Programmes

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 masters 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 through lectures and seminars, and may incorporate lab based sessions. Modules you study might include:

  • Pharmacotherapy
  • Professional Clinician Studies
  • Dermatology
  • Cancers
  • Pain Management
