Professional recognition for Pharmaceutical Science Degrees

The Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences (APS) is delighted to announce that the pharmaceutical science course at the University of Greenwich has become the first APS accredited course having successfully completed the accreditation process set up by the Academy towards the end of 2017.

This is the first time that a pharmaceutical science course has been accredited in the United Kingdom and it is also, we believe, a world first.

Achieving accreditation gives assurance to students and employers that the course meets the high standards required by the Academy and that these standards will be maintained throughout the 5-year period of accreditation.

APS believes that the accreditation process will raise the profile of pharmaceutical sciences in both academia and industry. The discipline is key in the discovery, development and manufacture of new medicines and as such is central to government initiatives to encourage the pharmaceutical industry to maintain and strengthen its strong base here in the UK.

The Academy will continue to work with other stakeholders to build the science base for the ultimate benefit of patients.
