About

The Pharmacy degree is a four-year programme at University of Kent based on three interlinked themes: practitioner and patient; medicines design and manufacture; and the patient, disease and drug action. Extensive use is made of tutorials, workshops and practical laboratory classes. 

Overview

Throughout the Pharmacy programme at University of Kent, external placements are arranged at hospitals and community pharmacies.

Graduates are required to undertake a pre-registration year in practice and pass a registration exam before they can register as a pharmacist in Great Britain.

Teaching and assessment 

Teaching is by lectures, seminars, workshops and practical laboratory classes, which take up approximately two thirds of the programme. Placements form a key part of the teaching programme.

A variety of assessment methods are used including practical dispensing examinations, objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs), presentations (individual and group), written reports, interim assessments and end-of-year written examinations.

Careers

There are opportunities in all branches of the profession, including hospital, community, primary care, industry, armed services, prison services and academia. Flexible working is widely available.
