Course content


The Postgraduate Diploma in Pharmacy Management offers practitioners working within pharmacy the opportunity to gain a unique qualification in pharmacy management, and thereby an opportunity for career development through the management route, either within secondary care or community pharmacy environments.

This diploma will advance the development of pharmacy practitioners in areas of personal and personnel management, marketing principles, and financial management within a framework of self-reflection and self-development. On successful completion of the course, students should have improved management, marketing and financial skills, which will benefit the practitioner, the employer and the community as a whole by the professional development of the pharmacist and other relevant pharmacy staff.

This course is undergoing academic revalidation during 2016/17, and the course content/ modules are subject to change. for the most up to date information, please contact


This programme is designed specifically for those working within pharmacy, to provide a distinct and unique qualification gained from the study of all aspects of pharmacy business management. In order to widen access and participation, the course will be offered as a distance-learning course, allowing practitioners to allocate their time more readily within the demands of their employment.

The use of a variety of quality management systems and techniques encompassing a range of recognised transformational, behavioural and personal development practices is a novel approach to management training and education. These techniques allow flexibility for individuals to use methods most suitable to their personal learning styles. They will assist the pharmacist/student to manage and positively influence all spheres of their potential influence, from other healthcare professionals, to patients, from political spheres to suppliers; and to identify opportunities where others will only assess risk. Completion of the programme will enable the pharmacist/student to consistently achieve the results that they want for themselves, their business, their services and their personal progression.


This is a fully online, part-time, distance learning programme.

PgDip: two academic years for completion

PgCert exit award may be offered after one academic year

Career options

Many people working within pharmacy take on a management role to some extent which has not been supported by their undergraduate training. This programme will support those working within pharmacy to the Agenda for Change Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF) who wish to progress and require a postgraduate diploma in addition to their undergraduate degree to do so. This programme will also support those employed within the pharmacy retail sector in community pharmacies who wish to proceed along a management career pathway. Currently most of the postgraduate diplomas that are available are clinical in nature; this programme will provide for those who have chosen a career pathway other than the clinical route e.g. patient-services, medicines information, management.
