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 2016)

New for 2016/17, our new MSc in Advanced Clinical Pharmacy Practice provides a flexible programme of study that is designed to develop the therapeutic knowledge and clinical practice skills of pharmacists to an advanced level.

- Open to local, national and international applicants

- Open to pharmacists from all employment sectors

- Blend of distance and work-based learning

- Independent Prescribing option for UK pharmacists (subject to GPhC accreditation)

- Management and leadership development option

- Optional on-campus and local hospital teaching for International students

This programme replaces our previous Clinical Pharmacy and Community Pharmacy programmes.

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.

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 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.
