UEA School of Pharmacy receives accreditation to educate Malaysian Pharmacy students
The UEA School of Pharmacy has recently received accreditation from the Malaysian Pharmacy Board to allow them to receive Malaysian students onto both their four year Pharmacy and five year Pharmacy with placements degrees. Following a three day visit from high ranking pharmacists representing the Malaysian government, the UEA School of Pharmacy degree was deemed to be of suitable quality to allow students from Malaysia to attend the university and their qualification will be recognised on return to Malaysia.
The accreditation process was led by Dr Susan Matthews, Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutical Chemistry, with extensive support from Emma Smith, Pharmacy with Placements course director, and our placement providers from the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, West Suffolk Hospital, Addenbrookes and Day Lewis Pharmacy.
Dr Matthews was quoted as saying ‘We are so pleased that Malaysian students have a new opportunity to study overseas in a top UK Pharmacy School. UEA has received a Gold Teaching excellence framework ranking and is a world top 200 institution (Times Higher Education World Rankings) and offers a wonderful campus environment in the city of Norwich.’
