Faculty of Medical Sciences


School of Pharmacy


Study Pharmacy at Newcastle University and you'll be joining our world-renowned Faculty of Medical Sciences. We have an international reputation for the quality of our well-established degrees in medicine, dentistry, psychology and biomedical sciences.

From September 2017, Newcastle University will be launching the Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) undergraduate degree.

Previously based at Durham University, students who have started their studies at Durham will now have their teaching delivered by Newcastle.

Alongside undergraduate teaching, a postgraduate research community will have ample opportunity to work across the Faculty of Medical Sciences, and our other faculties.


We're working towards a full accreditation from the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC), for our MPharm degree.

The GPhC is responsible for regulating pharmacy professionals and registered pharmacies in Great Britain. Studying a professionally accredited MPharm Honours degree is your first step to becoming a pharmacist.
