BSc (Hons) MPharm
School of Pharmacy

Why Pharmacy at RCSI Dublin?

A highly prestigious, internationally-recognised and portable degree, RCSI's five-year MPharm programme offers you a range of career options in areas such as community and hospital pharmacy, the pharmaceutical industry, medical research and development, regulation and academia.

Clinically-focused from the outset, the patient is at the core of everything you learn from the first year right through to final year. You will have the opportunity to develop these clinical and professional skills through patient case studies and patient consultation labs in a safe, simulated environment in Europe’s largest and most modern clinical simulation facility at our city centre campus.

Uniquely, in second year, you will complete your community pharmacy placement over a 12-week period rather than in one full two-week block, to align your practical experiences each week with what you learn on campus.
