Programme objectives

The Master in Pharmacy is the final step leading to the qualification of pharmacist, which allows graduates to work in the profession. Since pharmacy offers many different opportunities, the course is not only tailored to the internationally recognised training standards for high street and hospital pharmacy, which is a traditional path for pharmacy graduates, but also covers a range of other activities which provide career opportunities, such as jobs in the pharmaceutical industry, analytical laboratories, (clinical biology, food/nutrition, toxicology, etc.), clinical pharmacy or scientific research in the fields of biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences. Their training means that pharmacists are really the only specialists in medicinal products working for patients and their health. Their theoretical and practical knowledge is highly appreciated since it focuses on promoting and protecting human health in line with particularly strict quality standards. As the person responsible for medicines which people take, from their design through to their use, pharmacists are thorough, careful scientists. They have particularly good analytical skills in their areas of competence and are perfectly integrated into modern society, which has high health care demands and is concerned about cost and accessibility issues.

Benefits of the ULB training

The course provides a mix of high quality training and learning for a multi-faceted job which is rapidly changing. The division into two options means that students can gear the final stages of their courses towards activities and placements which will prepare them for existing opportunities while still covering a comprehensive range of subjects. The Faculty of Pharmacy attaches a great deal of importance to pharmacy itself, as a result of the many practicing pharmacists who teach there. At the same time, it is open to other disciplines from the fields of health science, including medicine.

Practical training, up-to-date teaching practices with project-based learning and role-playing seminar to concretely learn the role of chemist.
