The non-endorsed certificate is an introduction to research by way of a small research experience in the pharmaceutical sciences, clinical pharmacy, social pharmacy or biopharmaceutics.
The postgraduate certificate is intended for practising pharmacists who wish to extend their knowledge and skills by way of postgraduate study.
Students wishing to advance to the Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Pharmacy (PGDipClinPharm) should obtain an endorsement in Medicines Optimisation. Practising as a registered pharmacist is a requirement.
