School of Pharmacy

Welcome to one of the leading pharmacy schools in the UK. What will you discover here?

Our courses are designed to help you excel as both a practitioner and a scientist, with plenty of hands-on experience with patients. 

We work with governments and international companies to improve care for millions of people. Our ground-breaking research into cataracts has led to the creation of an improved model which allows researchers to examine lenses and test potential remedies. We're also making exciting progress in areas such as care home medication and new fields of drug discovery. 

We're a thriving school, with links to partners such as AstraZeneca, GSK, Merck, the NHS, the EU and governments in Europe and beyond. And with our new £31 million state-of-the-art teaching labs, we're pushing for even more.

Since 2018, UEA Research & Innovation Services has held an annual Awards ceremony to recognise and reward UEA staff, students and recent graduates for their research, innovation and enterprise work. For the first time ever, the Innovation & Impact Awards are going online, and we are inviting you to join us for the celebrations! The Awards shine a light on projects that have created significant impact beyond academia and have involved collaborations with partners outside academia such as industry, policy makers and NGOs. Previous winners include student/graduate startups Catching a Fish in Norway, eSurgery, Safepoint and Coral Eyewear. This year’s event will include a keynote from Christie Watson, Professor of Medical and Health Humanities and author of The Courage to Care: A Call for Compassion.
