The students completed their MPharm degree in 2010 and have spent a year working in either hospitals or community pharmacies.
The cohort of 29 graduates recently sat their Pre-Registration Exam, with 92.6% passing, meaning they are now Pharmacists registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council. The figure is well above average for the pharmacy schools across the country.
Professor Rae Morgan, Head of Pharmacy, said: “We are delighted with the success of our first cohort of MPharm graduates, who have all done exceptionally well in their professional practice environments.
“Their success is testament to the high standard of training provided on the University course and the emphasis placed on ensuring our graduates are ready for a challenging career in Pharmacy when they graduate.”
Run by the School of Applied Sciences, the four-year MPharm course was launched in 2006 and the first cohort graduated in September 2010.
The MPharm course enables students to develop the necessary skills and to successfully complete pre-registration training, register as a Pharmacist with the General Pharmaceutical Council and undertake a career in their chosen area of professional pharmacy practice.
