About Our School
The School of Pharmacy is one of the most highly rated pharmacy schools in the UK, providing a four-year undergraduate pharmacy course which leads to the honours degree of Master of Pharmacy (MPharm). The popular MPharm course runs not only in Nottingham, but also at the University’s beautiful Malaysia Campus where, in 2005, the School introduced the UK’s first fully accredited 2+2 MPharm course. On this innovative course students spend two years studying in Malaysia and two years in Nottingham.
The strength of the School is reflected in its success in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise when it was ranked 1st for quality, with 95% of its research of international standard and 35% world-leading. The School’s world class research was also recognised by the award of the 2007 Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Innovation Category for 'enhancing significantly the development of new medicines'
The School has a strong reputation, not only for its collaborative research with major players within the pharmaceutical industry but also for the innovative companies which have emerged as spin-outs from research. Much of the School’s cutting-edge research is carried out in the £25 million Centre for Biomolecular Sciences.
