Changes to Pharmacy admissions process

Pharmacy admissions process

The admissions criteria for the LJMU Pharmacy undergraduate programme (MPharm) has changed. Applicants are no longer interviewed or required to sit an admissions test.

Our academic entry and Fitness to Practise requirements for the programme remain unchanged, however, we no longer feel that it is necessary for applicants to go through these extra steps before receiving an offer of a place on the programme. All offers will now be based solely on educational attainment. An offer may be unconditional on qualifications already achieved or conditional on qualifications yet to be achieved.

All applicants (home and international) who meet the study profile for the MPharm programme can expect to receive an offer within a few days of LJMU receiving a completed application. In addition, applicants will be invited to visit the campus to discover what studying Pharmacy at LJMU involves and what facilities are available. They will also have an opportunity to meet staff and current students.

In line with our General Pharmaceutical Council accreditation, all applicants remain subject to the Fitness to Practise requirements for the programme, this includes UK and/or overseas DBS, health check and for international applicants, IELTS 7.0 (minimum of 6.5 in each category).
