This 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.
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.
Students sit a written therapeutics examination at the end of the first and second years. 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.
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.
