Students will graduate with the new integrated 5-year Undergraduate-level Master’s degree. Once you have successfully completed your first four years (BPharm) you will then progress to the fifth year (MPharm). The degree programme is an integrated programme with 14 months of placements undertaken throughout the 5 years. Placements can be carried out in community, hospital or industry as well as within a regulatory organisation but the final eight-month placement in your fifth year must be carried out in a patient facing setting.

This degree gives QP status, which means a graduate can work as a qualified person in the pharmaceutical industry anywhere in the EU.

The MPharm enabled UCC’s School of Pharmacy to rank in the World’s Top 50 programmes by QS (2015).

There are four main areas of study within the pharmacy degree: Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry, Drug Delivery, Drug Action in the Body and the Clinical and Practice aspects of pharmacy. These subjects are taught in every year of the pharmacy degree.

 

Career prospects

There are many and diverse career prospects for pharmacists, both in Ireland and abroad. Career opportunities include the healthcare sector, such as community and hospital pharmacy; the pharmaceutical industry; medicines research and development, and regulation and quality control.
