Future Careers and Opportunities

MPharm graduates will need to undertake a pre-registration training year to become a qualified pharmacist. You may then consider postgraduate study, or training to become an independent prescriber.

Pharmacology graduates may go onto further study, research or work in industry. Specific jobs for recent graduates include Clinical Trials Assistant and Quality Control Assistant.

Postgraduate study could allow hospital-based staff progression to higher AfC banding and community practitioners a move into practice-based/GP-patient facing roles.
