Global Pharmacy MSc, PGDip, PGCert courses

  • Unique, innovative programme for pharmacists, technicians and pharmaceutical scientists interested in improving global health
  • Friendly, supportive and stimulating class environment with teaching by leading experts
  • One year full-time or two years part-time

Have you ever thought about using your pharmacy expertise to benefit people beyond the UK? Our Global Pharmacy MSc, PGDip and PGCert courses aim to equip you to apply your specialist knowledge and skills to make a unique contribution to improving global health through pharmacy. We will provide you with a foundation in the complex determinants of health, the global burden and management of disease, and research methods before critically exploring barriers to how the pharmacy workforce and pharmaceuticals can improve health. We will then investigate how these obstacles can be overcome, particularly focusing on populations most affected by health inequities.

The course is taught face to face and is taken full-time over one year or part-time over two years. The first two terms of teaching are at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, on the Falmer campus of the University of Sussex. During the third term you focus on a research-based MSc dissertation for which you can choose to be in the UK, or work overseas with one of our research partners.

The Global Pharmacy programme is hosted by the Brighton and Sussex Centre for Global Health Research, internationally renowned for its multidisciplinary research into issues such as antimicrobial resistance, tuberculosis, HIV, and neglected tropical diseases. We work in collaboration with the National Institute for Health Research and Wellcome Trust and have academic links all around the world as well as working with local colleagues from the Universities of Brighton and Sussex.

Entry requirements are a first or upper second-class undergraduate honours degree and English Language (IELTS): a minimum score of 7, with no less than 6.5 in each section.

Scholarships for the course are available.
