Our MPharm programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and experience you’ll need to embark on a career as a Pharmacist. Our School is internationally renowned for the outstanding quality of our teaching and research.
Undertaking the MPharm at Cardiff University means studying at one of the top schools of Pharmacy in the UK.
Today's pharmacists are not only experts in drug discovery and delivery, they play a direct role in improving patients’ health and wellbeing. Many now prescribe medicines independently of a doctor. We are proud to train the pharmacists of the future and, as the role of the pharmacist evolves, so too does our programme to reflect these exciting developments.
Above all else, we strive to ensure that our graduates are ready for the next step in their career and the many opportunities that await them.
That’s why 82% of our students who sat the General Pharmaceutical Council’s registration exam in June 2019 passed first-time, higher than the overall national average of 72%. For many years, 100% of our graduates who have applied for pre-registration pharmacy training have been successful in securing a training place.
On this four-year internationally respected programme you’ll learn about the discovery and development of new drugs and explore their chemical, physicochemical, pharmacological and toxicological properties. You’ll also study the clinical uses of medicines and the role of the pharmacist in improving patient outcomes as part of interprofessional healthcare teams.
You’ll learn about the underlying pathophysiology of many human diseases, and how the use of medicines can halt, slow the progression of, or reverse disease processes.
You’ll be taught all of this by our team of world-leading academic staff and pharmacist practitioners who have an extensive range of expertise. In fact, we ranked joint first School of Pharmacy nationally in the most recent Research Excellence Framework. This is a direct result of the quality, and cutting-edge nature of our research projects.
Some of your learning will take place alongside students from other health care disciplines as part of our interprofessional education and you’ll also be given the opportunity to carry out a range of placements in both traditional and role-emerging settings including community and hospital pharmacies, GP practices and specialist health and social care settings. This will provide you with invaluable experience on the front line of health care provision.

Our MEng (Hons) programmes also have the option of a Year in Europe, which is a year spent at an institution in France, Germany or Spain, after the third year of study. This is a chance not only for students to broaden their personal horizons, but also to develop further academic skills.
Links with industry
Students who are not on the Year in Industry scheme still benefit from industrial input in modules across all engineering disciplines. School-wide project modules are supported by industrial collaboration with a number of companies, including Flintec, Ove Arup and Partners International, Atkins, GL Garrard Hassan, BAE Systems, EADS, and Babcock Marine.
In the waste management, recycling, and energy fields there is significant input from research contracts with companies such as Rolls Royce, EoN, Tata Steel, and Stork Technical Services. Inputs are also received from companies such as Tidal Energy Ltd (TEL), Marine Current Turbines (part of Siemens), Bosch, ANSYS and Mabey Bridge.
In environmental and water engineering, presentations are given by industrially sponsored lecturers from CH2MHILL and Lusas. Direct industrial input also comes from companies including Newport Galvanisers (a subsidiary of Wedge Galvanisers), GBCard and Partners, Jacobs Engineering, Capita Symonds, and Mott-MacDonald.
In today's competitive graduate job market, we recognise that students are always looking for ways to make them stand out to prospective employers. Each year, our students have the opportunity to get involved with some really exciting projects.
