Welcome to the School of Pharmacy

SoP Banner

The School is part of the historic and globally recognised Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, which is based on St. Stephen's Green, Dublin at the heart of our capital city.

The School is currently in an exciting phase of growth, with a new integrated MPharm programme commencing in September 2015 and increasing student numbers. The integrated MPharm implements the most innovative and progressive teaching, in conjunction with clinical experience and dynamic research opportunities. In order to support this vision we have over recent years established relationships with a range of clinical and educational partners.

It will empower you to become a healthcare professional with expertise in medicines, knowing both why medicines work and how they improve the health and well being of patients. These skills will open up exciting and varied career pathways for you to follow, from those in patient facing settings to opportunities in drug development and research.

You will be educated alongside other healthcare professionals in order to prepare you for collaborative practice. Up to 30% of our class comprises international students offering cultural diversity and a global perspective to learning. From the first year of the programme you will gain experience in structured work placements and be in contact with patients helping contextualise your learning. In addition, you will have the opportunity to participate in exchanges abroad with our partner Institutions.

On successful completion of your MPharm you will be entitled to register as a pharmacist in Ireland and the European Union. Our programme is also recognised in a number of countries internationally. 

You can find out more about the School, our programmes, and what students and employers say about us, on the rest of our website and in our videos.
