Accreditation

The Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences (APS) set up an accreditation process for pharmaceutical science courses towards the end of 2017.
Overview

The pharmaceutical science course at the University of Greenwich became the first APS accredited course in 2018. 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. Since then two more institutions, Kingston University and Athlone Institute of Technology, have also achieved accreditation for their courses. APS is delighted that these institutions see the value of our accreditation process and several others are in the process of application to us.

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 in the UK and Ireland.

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

The APS is grateful for the support of:
