This course is run by the Medway School of Pharmacy which is a unique collaboration between the University of Kent and the University of Greenwich. The School is recognized as an established School of Pharmacy and is accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhc).
The MPharm programme is a four year programme which aims to provide pharmacy education of excellent quality and focuses on producing future pharmacists who will promote the safe and effective use of medicines, ensuring patient and public safety at all times.
The new MPharm curriculum is an outcomes-focused curriculum designed to prepare students for their future professional practice. Teaching is integrated covering basic and applied science, clinical and professional practice, all in the context of patient care. Core themes of biological sciences, chemistry and drug delivery, and professional practice are taught within integrated modules based around body systems including: brain and psychiatry; heart and circulatory system; and the endocrine system. Using the body systems we break down barriers between the themes supporting you to learn more effectively. This will be supported by an increasing focus on practice-related learning, as evidenced by placements and in-house simulation-based learning, as well as additional practice experience provided in-house.
The University of Kent manages the admissions process for this joint programme on behalf of the Medway School of Pharmacy, applications to the course can now be made using the University of Kent UCAS institution code K24. (Please note the institution code for the Medway School of Pharmacy (M62) is no longer in use)
