Careers

Pharmacy careers

Pharmacy is a highly varied profession with a number of different possible career paths open to graduates. 

Pharmacy graduates are highly sought after and continue to be amongst the most employable professionals in the UK.

The majority of pharmacists work in community or hospital practice. Others work closely with general practitioners (primary care) or within the many areas of the pharmaceutical industry.

A career as a pharmacist is exciting and constantly changing. Our MPharm degree will provide you with the practical skills and knowledge base to effectively contribute to high-quality patient care, whichever section of the profession you ultimately choose.

Our research-led programme is designed to ensure that you develop a keen awareness of research methodology and to introduce you to our research communities of practice within the University.

At the end of your studies you will be able to work within the breadth of fields traditionally associated with pharmacy, as well as having access to a range of postgraduate study opportunities.

Some graduates complete their pre-registration training then choose to return to higher education to complete a research degree. You can also take a PhD as part of your pre-registration training year, providing the other six months is in a patient-facing environment.
