  4. Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Pharmacy (with Research) – 2 years

Previous students have told us that they have found our courses relevant and helpful to them because it has a very ‘real life’ approach to learning. We recognise that postgraduate study can be challenging, particularly if you qualified a while ago or if you are juggling study with a demanding job or commitments at home.

The ethos of the programme is designed to enhance a ‘real life’ approach by:

  • Providing most of the teaching through distance-learning (except independent prescribing)
  • Having a supportive team of tutors and administrators available to answer queries
  • Using assessments that can be applied to your work situation
  • Fulfilling the CPD requirements of the RPSGB
  • Enabling you to obtain a diploma and Independent Prescribing in one qualification!
