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.
