Strwythur y cwrs

The Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Pharmacy is a part-time postgraduate programme and involves studying 120 credits for the Diploma, with the option to exit with 60 credits for the Certificate. 

The programme may be undertaken over two or three years and applicants should indicate which they intend to undertake in the application process. The modules run from September to June each academic year and for the two-year programme, 60 credits will be studied in each academic year.

Please note that there are three Core (compulsory) modules in the programme, one of which you will undertake in the first year of the programme.

For each of the other two Core (compulsory) modules, you have the optionality to undertake the module in either year 1 or year 2 of the programme.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022.

Blwyddyn un

In this year you will study 60 credits.  You will study (20 Core credits) and then an additional 40 credits from the remaining core (compulsory) and optional modules.

Choices of the optional modules available may depend upon where you work and if it is relevant, for example critical care will only be available to those based in secondary care.

Blwyddyn dau

In this year you will study 60 credits, from the core (compulsory) and optional modules.  The choice will depend upon what modules you completed in year 1.

Choices of the optional modules available may depend upon where you work and if it is relevant, for example critical care will only be available to those based in secondary care.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is committed to developing the knowledge and skills needed for a pharmacist to improve health outcomes and health care for patients. Top-quality teaching relies on academic and clinical expertise of pharmacy practitioners and clinicians.

You will be taught in a variety of ways.  A blended learning approach has been taken, which includes face-to-face study days, experiential learning, directed study, on-line activities and self-directed study.  The exact nature of your learning will be dependent upon the modules selected.

Attendance at study days will be dependent upon the modules chosen, but all students will attend the initial 3 day study block in September held in Birmingham, a 2 day study block at the beginning of October held in Cardiff either in year 1 or 2, and other study days either held in one of the four teaching centres (North Wales, South-East Wales, South-West Wales or Oxford) or in Cardiff, depending upon which modules are undertaken.

Throughout all modules there is a particular emphasis on identifying your own specific learning needs to direct your independent study and to ensure the module is relevant to your own practice.  Application of knowledge and skills in practice is the core of each module. 

Sut y caf fy asesu?

Assessments measure professional, academic and/or clinical practice.  Many modules include formative assessments (assessments which do not count towards the module mark) which are intended to provide you with feedback and an indication of your progress. 

Methods of summative assessment (assessments which count towards the module mark) vary depending upon the module and their specific learning outcomes. Methods include portfolios, oral presentations, objective structured clinical examination, written assignments such as posters, patient management problems, reflective assignments and analytical reviews.  Where there is an experiential practice component of the module, an assessment of your practice will be completed by an accredited tutor.  These tutors are trained, supported and guided by the University academic staff.

Attendance at Cardiff University will be required for some compulsory assessments, for example the Objective Structured Clinical Examination and the poster presentation.

We will provide you with feedback on your work in a variety of formats.  These will include oral feedback and electronic written feedback on assessed coursework.  The opportunity to understand and use feedback constructively will also be provided through meeting with your personal tutor. During your experiential practice you will be supported in your progress by an accredited tutor who will provide verbal and written feedback on your practice.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

Personal Tutor

Academic support for your studies will be by your Associate Course Director, who will act in the capacity as your University personal tutor.  The personal tutor system is a vital and central part of student support within the School. The role of the personal tutor is to monitor overall academic progress and to provide pastoral support, acting where appropriate as the first point of contact and a gateway to the student support services provided by the University (including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service). They will visit you in your place of work at least three times within the timeframe of the Diploma and will be available to provide support to you through e-mail, telephone and in person.  The Programme Director is also contactable and is available to answer your questions and address any difficulties you may be having with your studies.


At the beginning of your course there is a compulsory online induction module. This will help you find your way around the University’s virtual learning environment and it will also provide general information including about the personal tutor system, and how our administration and IT teams will support you. The virtual learning environment is accessible via desktop and mobile devices, allowing you to access relevant multimedia material, presentations, workshop handouts, bibliographies, further links, electronic exercises etc from anywhere.

The University library is available year-round. Staff are available to assist you and provide support and advice. The library holds many electronic journals and books that you will be able to access to help you with your studies.

Student-Staff Panel

At the beginning of each year a Student Academic Representative is appointed for the programme from amongst the students.

Student Academic Representatives bring feedback from students on their course to regular student-staff panels, where the representatives meet with School Staff to discuss the ways in which their courses can be improved. Student Academic Representatives are also a vital part of the feedback loop, communicating the changes brought about in Student-Staff panels back to the student body.
