We are proud of our excellent reputation for delivering industry-recognised courses, approved and accredited by related professional bodies. Teaching is delivered by researchers and practitioners, ensuring that students gain knowledge of the subject theory and practical experience via lab experiments, established placement links and public patient engagement.
We maintain a strong research profile with staff who are recognised for their cutting-edge research – so that courses are contemporary and relevant to the future employment of our students. Research and teaching are underpinned by an excellent learning environment with state-of-the-art laboratories of industry standards.
We have a proven track record of delivering successful bioscience courses, accredited and/or approved by relevant professional bodies: the Institute of Biomedical Science; Health and Care Professions Council; and the National School of Healthcare Science as part of Health Education England. A strong research-led culture combined with state-of-the-art laboratories ensures our teaching is always cutting edge.
Our MPharm Pharmacy degree course offers a modern integrated programme designed around the needs of patients, employers, regulators and students – preparing graduates to practise as future professional pharmacists. Our research-led teaching coupled with a hands-on practical application and a variety of placements in hospitals, community and industry, makes us a stand out choice.
Field studies are integral to our Biology course. UK trips are included in the fees and there are overseas fieldwork opportunities through well-established links with scientists and practitioners. Students can enhance their employability in science communication and education through work experience at the Young Scientist Centre (YSC) – a unique collaboration between UCLan and the Royal Institution.
