Pathway opportunities

You may consider an alternative research opportunity with us – the MSc (by research) is very similar to a PhD, but with a research project designed to take 12 months. It’s not intended as a first step towards a PhD, but rather as an alternative to a PhD.


This course is accredited by the GPhC, which regulates pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacies in Great Britain. You will gain the knowledge and skills required to be a key member of a healthcare team - becoming a pharmacy expert, health advocate, communicator, collaborator, scholar and professional.
