Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017). The Postgraduate Certificate in Non-Medical Prescribing aims to prepare pharmacists to practice within current non-medical prescribing legislation. The non-medical prescribing qualification annotated by the General Pharmaceutical Healthcare Council can be achieved by successful completion of a stand-alone 40 credit module, 'Non-medical prescribing' - SHGM22. Students wishing to complete the full Post Graduate Certificate in Non-Medical Prescribing for Pharmacists must also complete an optional 20 credit module, Pharmacology principles and practice (NMC) SHGM23. There will be two cohorts per year (subject to sufficient interest and professional body approval), starting in March and September each year. The Spring cohort will run every Wednesday from March to November (No lectures during August) and the Autumn cohort will be taught every Tuesday from September to the following March. Unfortunately this course is not available to international students.
