What Our Graduates Do

Jobs in this field require a four-year MPharm degree accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). Sussex has provisional GPhC accreditation and is currently working towards full accreditation

As Sussex's first Pharmacy students began studying in 2016, we do not currently have any information on graduate destinations for our MPharm graduates

Recent graduate destinations data from the Higher Education Statistics Agency suggests that 98% of MPharm graduates are working as pharmacists

There are also other routes including working in academia, regulatory bodies and the pharmaceutical industry
