Our pharmacy teaching is based in the Stopford Building, which also houses the Division of Medical Education and Biological Sciences.

This provides our undergraduate students with state-of-the-art modern facilities. Specialised aseptic facilities and simulated patient rooms have been built, along with a new dispensing suite and project laboratories.


In all years of the MPharm, students also get the opportunity to use offsite facilities when they spend time in pharmacy departments and on wards in one of three local NHS trusts.

Students will also undertake community pharmacy placements in all four years of the programme. They will also have the opportunity to undertake a placement in the pharmaceutical industry in Years 2 and 3.

The Year 3 placement includes hands-on time in the laboratories working on small scale research projects. Some of the students who have undertaken these placements have gone onto gain pre-registration training and work in the industry.

Finally, in Year 4, all students undertake a placement in a GP surgery, shadowing a practice pharmacist.
