Trosolwg y cwrs

Our MPharm programme is designed to equip you with the extensive knowledge, skills and experience you’ll need to embark on a career as a Pharmacist. Plus our School is internationally renowned for the outstanding quality of our teaching and research. 

Undertaking the MPharm at Cardiff University means studying at one of the top schools of Pharmacy in the UK.  

Today's pharmacists are not only experts in drug discovery and delivery, they play a direct role in improving patients’ health and wellbeing.  Many now also prescribe medicines independently of a doctor. We are proud to train the pharmacists of the future and, as the role of the pharmacist evolves, so too does our programme to reflect these exciting developments. 

Above all else, we strive to ensure that our graduates are ready for the next step in their career and the many opportunities that await them. 

That’s why 92% of our students who sat the General Pharmaceutical Council’s registration exam in June 2018 passed first-time (far higher than the national average of 78%) and, for many years, 100% of our graduates who have applied for pre-registration pharmacy training have been successful in securing a training place. 

On this four-year internationally respected programme you’ll learn about the discovery and development of new drugs and explore their chemical, physicochemical, pharmacological and toxicological properties. You’ll also study the clinical uses of medicines and the role of the pharmacist in improving patient outcomes as part of interprofessional healthcare teams.  

You’ll learn about the underlying pathophysiology of many human diseases, and how the use of medicines can halt, slow the progression of, or reverse disease processes. 

And you’ll be taught all of this by our team of world-leading academic staff and pharmacist practitioners who have an extensive range of expertise. In fact, we were ranked joint first School of Pharmacy nationally in the most recent Research Excellence Framework. This is a direct result of the quality, and cutting-edge nature of our research projects. 

Some of your learning will take place alongside students from other health care disciplines as part of our interprofessional education and you’ll also be given the opportunity to carry out a range of placements in both traditional and role-emerging settings including community and hospital pharmacies, GP practices and specialist health and social care settings. This will provide you with invaluable experience on the front line of health care provision.

As a close-knit School, with a family feel, we’ll help you to enjoy an academically rich and fulfilling experience throughout your time at Cardiff University. Here are some of the key features of our programme: 

  • The Cardiff School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is now celebrating 100 years of excellence in teaching and research.  It is based in its own Redwood Building, named after the first professor of pharmacy in the UK.

  • Our MPharm programme is accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and draws on the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) subject benchmark for pharmacy. 

  • Aside from being taught by an academic team who carry out cutting-edge, world-leading, research, you’ll also get to learn from expert practitioners based in community, hospital, primary care and industrial settings who’ll give you a thorough understanding of the profession of Pharmacy. 

  • In order to prepare you to deliver multidisciplinary healthcare, you’ll learn with students from other medical and healthcare disciplines through our innovative interprofessional education sessions.  

  • You’ll be given the opportunity to hone your interpersonal and communication skills which are essential for many Pharmacy related careers. 

  • Not only will you have support from your own Personal Tutor, you’ll also be able to get additional advice and support from a Student Mentor within the School to help you adapt to University life. 

  • You’ll be welcomed by our active student society that arranges social, sporting and other events and you’ll be given the chance to provide feedback through our dedicated Undergraduate Student Staff Panel. 

  • We also foster opportunities for ERASMUS international exchange visits of students and have funded summer placements in its laboratories for undergraduates too. 

  • You’ll be able to engage in the ‘life’ of the profession through local pharmacy evening meetings or conferences of the British Pharmaceutical Students Association, and, further afield, the International Pharmaceutical Students Federation. 

After completing our MPharm degree, you’ll be in a position to apply for the pre-registration year. Once this pre-registration year has been completed successfully and you have passed the GPhCs registration assessment, you’ll be eligible to register as a qualified pharmacist. The MPharm will also prepare you for other career avenues in health, science or education.

Strwythur y cwrs

This is a four-year full-time degree, consisting of 120 credits per year. Since the programme leads, after subsequent pre-registration training, to registration as a pharmacist and is regulated, through accreditation by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC), all modules are required modules and must be passed: the MPharm award is made only upon achievement of the full 480 credits from the full set of required modules.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2019/20. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2019

Blwyddyn un

In year one you will learn about the role of the pharmacist in the UK. It has altered drastically in the past 40 years, with a shift from a more traditional dispensing role to that of a patient-focussed provider of clinical services. Pharmaceutical care is the focus of attention and pharmacists have been highlighted as the sole profession specifically educated to deliver pharmaceutical services. Learning about your future role will provide a building block for the remainder of the MPharm course where optimising pharmaceutical care is the ultimate outcome.

The aim is to provide an introduction to the roles and responsibilities of pharmacists and pharmacy within healthcare systems, in public health and more widely in society.

Your specific study will focus on the healthy human and patient-self-care, the fundamentals of pharmaceutical science, and medicines in healthcare.

Blwyddyn dau

In year two you will have the opportunity to demonstrate attitudes, behaviours and skills-development of a future health professional preparing for safe and evidence-based practice focused on the needs of the patient and society

Your specific study will focus on the use of medicines in priority clinical areas such as heart disease, asthma, and gastro-intestinal diseases.

Blwyddyn pedwar

The final year features a research or development project and also develops students to prepare for holistic healthcare; challenging them to make decisions, take responsibility, manage change and deal with uncertainty.

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.
Students learning in the lab

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut caf fy addysgu?

The degree is modular in its organisation. Each module is supported by electronic teaching materials shared via Learning Central, part of the University’s virtual learning environment.

Teaching on site in the School mainly comprises lectures, practical classes and workshops, and computer-aided learning (CAL) is a feature of some practical classes and workshops. 

Off-site there are placements in health and social care practices and settings. In addition, there is inter-professional education (IPE) with medical students in all years of the programme: joint clinical skills workshops concentrating particularly on patient safety and on the safe and effective use of medicines.  There is also IPE with optometry students.  As well as encountering patients and other health practitioners during placements and IPE, patients, doctors, nurses and allied professionals contribute to learning in the university classroom.  By all of these approaches, our students receive both a scientific grounding in pharmacy and an orientation to and preparation for a career as a health care practitioner.

After a research methods module in year three, you will undertake a research, scholarly or practice-development project in year four.

There is a particular emphasis on progression towards independent learning in preparation for life-long learning and continuing professional development (CPD: which pharmacists are required to evidence no less frequently than every five years).  Consequently, directed private study and advised wider learning are features of all modules. 

In each year of the course, you are supported and required to produce records of your CPD activity and also of Personal Development Planning (PDP) and execution for specific competency or skills acquisition.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be provided with an enrolment and induction programme in the week immediately before formal teaching and learning begins.  You will be provided with copies of the Code of Conduct for Pharmacy Students (in Great Britain) and the School Safety Handbook.  You will be provided with a laboratory coat and a locker with key for the duration of your time with us.  It is your responsibility to wash the laboratory coat and to return the locker key when your time as a student is completed.  Most importantly, you will be provided with a timetable of classes in enrolment and induction week in September of each year.  All modules are supported by ‘electronic’ content on the University’s virtual learning environment, Learning Central.  You will be instructed as to how to access Learning Central and your University email and Student Information Management System (SIMS) accounts.

You will have access to the School Undergraduate Office (Redwood Room 1.01) to make enquiries, complete administrative processes and to pick up forms and other important documents.  The ‘pigeon holes’ for undergraduate student mail are just outside this office.

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 feedback and advice to tutees. Tutors also provide personal support and academic guidance, acting where appropriate as the first point of contact and a gateway to the student support services provided by the University and the Students’ Union.  Information discussed with a personal tutor may be documented in a personal tutor’s notes.  Confidentiality will be maintained unless there are implications for patients’ or the public’s safety or well-being.  You will be assigned a tutor and deputy tutor at first enrolment in year one.  Normally these will be your tutor and deputy tutor throughout your time as a student.  There is more information in the MPharm Handbook.

Module leaders are contactable and make themselves available to answer student questions and address their difficulties with study of their module.

The University offers a range of services including the Careers Service, the Counselling Service, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Student Support Service, and excellent libraries and resource centres.

Feedback

We’ll provide you with frequent feedback on your work. This comes in a variety of formats including formative feedback during tutorials, discussion classes and problem-solving classes as well as through written comments on coursework.

Sut caf fy asesu?

Progress in each module is assessed during and at the end of the semester(s) in which they are taught.  Many modules include formative or diagnostic assessments (assessments which do not count towards the module mark) which are intended to help your understanding and to provide you with an indication of your progress.  Methods of summative assessment (assessments which count towards the module mark) are varied: essay assignments, multiple-choice question tests, conventional written examinations, assessed presentations, and objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) and other practical/skills tests are all used as appropriate.

The course leads, after subsequent pre-registration training, to registration as a pharmacist and is regulated, through accreditation, by the GPhC.  Consequently, there are capabilities or competencies that all students must evidence at a satisfactory level to be allowed to progress through and achieve the final award of the programme. For pharmaceutical calculations, dispensing and clinical assessments students can be required to achieve at pass marks higher than 40%. Such cases are clearly stated in the schedules of assessment for each year of study within the set of module descriptions for that year.

Gyrfaoedd

Rhagolygon gyrfa

The career options for Pharmacists are varied and plentiful, ranging from hospital, primary care or community settings - including being based within GP surgeries - to industry or research in the UK and internationally, making this an exciting degree to embark upon. 

Many of today’s pharmacists are now also qualified to prescribe medicines independently of a doctor and are on the frontline of healthcare provision. 

Our MPharm programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and experience you need to pursue your pharmacy career. Following on from successfully completing our MPharm programme, you’ll be able to undertake a pre-registration year of training before sitting the General Pharmaceutical Council’s registration assessment to register as a Pharmacist. 

And we are proud that 100% of our students are in employment and/or further study six months after graduating. 

Our graduates have gone on to occupy key positions in NHS hospitals and hospitals overseas, in community pharmacy organisation such as Boots UK, LLoyds Pharmacy Group, Well pharmacy, in allied scientific and healthcare enterprises, as well as in industry settings. Some have also gone on to enjoy careers as veterinary pharmacists, military pharmacists and in regulatory affairs.  

Types of jobs: 

  • Hospital Pharmacist - as a hospital pharmacist, you’d be a key part of the healthcare team, working in either the NHS or a private hospital, with a clear focus on patient needs. 

  • Community Pharmacist - based in your own pharmacy, out of a local healthcare centre or doctor’s surgery, you’d be at the frontline of healthcare in the UK or overseas. With further study, you may prescribe medicines independently. 

  • Primary care Pharmacist – as a primary care pharmacist you will optimise patient’s medicines to maximise the benefits and minimise the risks associated with different drugs. You will also help to develop services to support the local population with their health needs. 

  • Industrial Pharmacist - you’d be involved in the research, design, development and testing of new medicines and treatments, ensuring they are safe and of a good quality for patients. 

  • Academic Pharmacist - if teaching, researching, practising or a combination of all three appeals to you, becoming an Academic Pharmacist could be for you. You might be based in universities, research institutions or other organisations throughout the world.
