We have a strong track record of our graduates obtaining pre-registration training positions, building on the firm foundation of our respected Pharmacy degree. In 2013, 98% of our graduates (who were available for work) reported that they were in employment and/or further study within six months of graduation.

Our graduates occupy key positions in NHS hospitals and hospitals overseas, in healthcare retailers such as Boots UK, Lloyds Pharmacy Group, the Co-operative Pharmacy, and in allied scientific and healthcare enterprises.
