This programme is undergoing scheduled re-accreditation with the General Pharmaceutical Council in April – July 2018 to ensure it continues to be delivered to the highest possible standards and meet the required standards for education and training in a rapidly changing profession. The information contained on this webpage is indicative until re-accreditation is confirmed. We are welcoming applications for September 2018.
Our degree programme has three integrated streams – one representing pharmaceutical science, one body systems and clinical studies, and the other pharmacy practice and healthcare. With a focus on developing the practical and professional skills of a pharmacist, you will develop a grounding in both science and practice that will enable you to make informed decisions in practice. This means that as a graduate you leave us with a degree that prepares you for employability in all areas of pharmacy – community, hospital, primary care or industry.
At the end of your degree, in order to register as a pharmacist, you will have to successfully complete one year of postgraduate training and pass the GPhC registration assessment. Our students have performed well on the GPhC registration, with 100% of DMU students, who sat for the first time in June 2016, passing the GPhC preregistration assessment.
The Leicester School of Pharmacy have dedicated support days to help you prepare for your assessment, even after you have graduated.
At DMU, we are committed to helping our graduates enhance their careers and personal development through further study.
