The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) is the regulator for pharmacy in Great Britain and is the accrediting body for pharmacy education in GB. Recently (May 2011) the GPhC introduced new standards for the initial education and training of pharmacists called “Future Pharmacists”.
The proposed MPharm degree course at Lincoln is being specifically designed to meet these new education standards and to produce the next generation of “Future Pharmacists”. All Universities who intend to offer an MPharm degree such as Lincoln are subject to seven, stepwise annual inspections as the course is being designed and taught. After each successful step provisional accreditation is awarded until the first students graduate at step 7.
Because of this rigorous process you can be confident that the School will meet the standards throughout its development. Further information can be found on the GPhC website (www.pharmacyregulation.org) together with accreditation reports from all approved training providers.
'Successful completion of an accredited MPharm degree is not a guarantee of a pre-registration place for any student.
