About the programmes
Pharmacy students will typically take modules focusing on chemistry, human biology and physiology, pharmaceutics (how medicines are made) and pharmacology (how drugs interact with the body). Most pharmacy degrees combine academic research with more vocational training, such as learning about legal and ethical issues, and how to interact with patients.

Teaching
Teaching methods include lectures, seminars and personal tutorials, practical sessions, guest speakers. This is all arranged in correlation with lectures/professors. You will also spend a significant amount of time in doing personal study.

Language

Degree and qualifications
The first and second cycles are integrated and last 5 years of study (total of 300 ECTS) in order to obtain the degree of Master.

Career options
The majority of pharmacists work in community practice (commonly known as a chemist’s shop or community pharmacy). Many pharmacists also work full time or part time as managers or pharmacists-in-charge.
