What is Pharmacy?

Our four-year integrated Masters degree in Pharmacy builds on the strengths of the Medical School, integrating science and practice to prepare you to meet the challenges of the changing face of Pharmacy.

Pharmacists today work together with doctors and nurses in a clinical setting so training at Swansea will reflect this. You will benefit from our experience and expertise in clinical and life science, research, training and practice, helping you to develop your pharmaceutical practice, science and knowledge. 

Throughout the course, your studies will reflect the way Pharmacists approach patients and how patients present to Pharmacists, combining scientific understanding with how it is applied; ‘the practice of Pharmacy’.
