Plans are underway to establish a new School of Pharmacy at the University of Lincoln.

Students will be able to choose from a four-year MPharm Pharmacy degree or a three-year BSc (Hons) in Pharmaceutical Science. The University also plans to forge links with businesses and industry, incorporating their needs into academic programmes so that graduates have the most up to date skills.

The University is working closely with local partners, which will address shortages of qualified pharmacists.
