Study with the UK's Number 1 School of Pharmacy

Take your career to the next level with the UK's number 1 School of Pharmacy (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015)

The QUB Clinical Pharmacy programme is delivered using a combination of distance and work-based learning; there is no requirement to attend QUB at any stage. This format allows delivery to pharmacists globally and we welcome applications from international pharmacists.

Distance learning

Students are provided with access to their module study materials and online resources via Queen's Online, the QUB online learning environment. Modules are studied and coursework is submitted according to a timetable provided at the start of the course. A variety of assessments are used throughout this programme including case studies, online tests, written coursework and workbooks. Written coursework is uploaded and returned via Queen's Online.

Therapeutics examination
Students sit a written therapeutics examination at the end of the PG Diploma stage. UK examination centres are located in London, Glasgow, Bradford and Belfast. Examination venues are arranged for international students in their countries of residence. These are normally at the nearest British Council office.

Work-based learning

Students are required to identify a local mentor before commencing their studies. The local mentor should be a senior clinical pharmacist or medical doctor. Students are expected to meet with their local mentor regularly to discuss the topics being studied and how they might incorporate their learning into their daily work. In addition, the local mentor undertakes several work-based assessments during the PG Certificate and PG Diploma stages. Local mentors are provided with a detailed handbook and must be approved by the School before the programme starts in September.

Our clinical pharmacy programme has been designed to provide hospital pharmacists with the knowledge and skills required to specialise in clinical pharmacy within the hospital sector and includes the following topics:

Pharmaceutical care
Medicines Governance
Clinical laboratory tests
Infection and antimicrobials
Management of pain
Evidence-based medicine
Research in clinical pharmacy
Therapeutics for clinical pharmacists
Masters research dissertation

MSc research supervision
In the Master's (MSc) year, students undertake a work-based research or audit project and submit a dissertation at the end of the year. Each student is allocated to a member of the School's academic staff who supervises their work and the preparation of the dissertation. Students are required to submit progress reports and dissertation drafts to their supervisor according to a timetable throughout the year.

The MSc is normally completed over a period of 36 months, however, credit transfer may be available for students who already possess a suitable postgraduate qualification. Sufficient credit transfer may allow the student to complete the PG Diploma in 12 months or the MSc in 24 months.
