Pharmacy at Manchester

Whether you want to train as a pharmacist, work in the pharmaceutical industry or make life-changing scientific discoveries, Manchester can help you get to where you want to be through our courses and research opportunities in pharmacy.

If you want to start the journey towards becoming a qualified pharmacist, our undergraduate MPharm courses are the perfect place to start thanks to the combination of clinical tutorials, excellent facilities and high-quality teaching that you will benefit from. We are ranked 6th in the UK for pharmacy and pharmacology in both the Guardian's 2017 league table and the QS World University Rankings 2017.

For graduates, our master's courses offer the chance to learn more about a particular area and develop specialist skills and knowledge, while our postgraduate research programmes are ideal if you want to become a researcher.

We also carry out a wide range of research in pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences, collaborating with both the NHS and the pharmaceutical industry to make important advances that help improve health outcomes.

"The background knowledge of pharmacology, medicines law and formulation that I learnt as a pharmacy student still come in useful in my role today."
