Latest news

Kingston University and Athlone Institute of Technology achieve APS accreditation


The Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences (APS) is delighted to announce that two more institutions, Kingston University and Athlone Institute of Technology have recently achieved accreditation having gone through the accreditation process set up by the Academy towards the end of 2017.

APS is delighted that institutions see the value of our accreditation process and several others are in the process of application to us.

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 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.
