The principle of our MPharm (Hons) Pharmacy with a Preparatory (Foundation) Year degree is to prepare you for future careers as registered Pharmacists. Our approach recognises that Pharmacists are key members of a multidisciplinary healthcare team and our inter-professional education activities reflect this.
The teaching and learning methods employed address the knowledge and competencies required for the varied responsibilities of pharmacists. You will learn through a variety of teaching methods including case-based learning, workshops, laboratory classes, experiential learning, lectures and an independently-led research project.
We are proud to provide an outstanding educational experience, using the most effective learning and teaching approaches, carefully tailored to suit the specific needs of your course.
Practical skills sessions, workshops, integrated case studies, and simulated practice experience sessions predominantly take place in person, allowing for group working and demonstrations. However, our approach also includes the use of some online learning to support and enhance traditional face-to-face teaching, and this increases in the third and final years as you spend more time off-campus and on placement.
Online learning may take place ‘live’ using software such as Zoom, allowing you to interact with the lecturer and other students and to ask questions. Lecture recordings also allow for more flexibility to revisit material, to revise for assessments and to enhance learning outside of the classroom. Some modules have extra resources in Canvas, such as videos, slides and quizzes enabling further flexible study.
This course offers some modules taught through the medium of
Welsh or bilingually for students who consider themselves to be
fluent Welsh speakers. For more details on the provision available
