Keele School of Pharmacy welcomes GPhC publication of registration assessment pass rates

Posted on 19 May 2015

This week the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) published registration assessment pass rates for all schools of pharmacy in the UK. Passing the assessment is one of the requirements for registering as a pharmacist in Great Britain. The report covers the four years 2011-2014 and is available here.

Before you can practice as a pharmacist in the UK students must develop in clinical delivery, science and prepare for working in the sector. The MPharm programme at Keele School of Pharmacy has been designed to prepare our students for the current pharmacy profession and the emerging roles for qualified pharmacists, with access to the latest state of the art facilities and experienced staff who work both in academia, the NHS and the Pharmaceutical Industry.

Professor Nigel Ratcliffe, Head of School of Pharmacy said:

“Keele are extremely pleased that the GPhC has now published the registration assessment pass rates. This information is now available, alongside information from the Complete University Guide showing Keele’s strong performance in student satisfaction, research and employability. Keele have shown a consistently high pass rate in the GPhC registration assessments for our pharmacy graduates passing the assessment in the first attempt. In 2012, Keele achieved a 100% pass rate at the first attempt. All of these data are extremely important quality indicators and data that Keele are proud of.”

As we continue to focus on preparing students for many different outlets including healthcare, science, research and community support through their careers in pharmacy, we invite you to get in touch with the School of Pharmacy to discuss your questions and how you can start your career in Pharmacy.
