Study type Taught


Our Advanced Clinical Pharmacy Practice programme was developed following extensive consultation with pharmacists and their employers both within and beyond the United Kingdom. It provides a flexible study pathway that is designed to develop the therapeutic knowledge and clinical skills of pharmacists to an advanced level. The modules are designed to help pharmacists to acquire and demonstrate the advanced-level competencies defined in the Royal Pharmaceutical Society's Advanced Pharmacy Framework.

The programme is an amalgamation of our previous clinical pharmacy and community pharmacy programmes and is open to pharmacists in all employment sectors.

The programme is studied entirely off-campus by distance-learning and is therefore open to pharmacists both within and outside the United Kingdom.

Alternative options are available that include study in Northern Ireland: 1. Students in Great Britain may select the Independent Prescribing option in year 2, which includes a compulsory 5-day clinical skills residential at Queen's (Postgraduate Diploma and MSc). 2. 'Introduction to UK clinical practice' is an optional module offered to international students in year 3 (MSc only). The module has been developed in collaboration with Northern Ireland's Regional Medicines Optimisation Innovation Centre (MOIC) and includes a compulsory 2-week residential at MOIC in Antrim.
