About the faculty
The Faculty of Pharmacy at BUE offers a unique programme with a British style of education of the highest quality, which equips graduates with the diverse pharmaceutical skills needed for various career paths. Pharmacists are key players in the health care team, whether in clinical wards, hospital or community pharmacies, providing the advanced knowledge of effectiveness and safety of drugs tailored to each individual patient. The BUE Pharmacy Programme, therefore, offers four Pharmacotherapy modules plus Pharmacy Practice, Community and Hospital pharmacy modules with advanced knowledge of Communication Skills, Medical Terminology, Human Anatomy and Histology, Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology and Pharmacology & Toxicology.
Furthermore, the Programme offers advanced knowledge of pharmaceutical and analytical chemistry plus pharmaceutical compounding, to equip graduates with the special skills required for the development of new drugs and new formulations for the
pharmaceutical industry and for the production of drugs with international quality.
The Programme also offers modules such as Pharmacy Ethics & legislations, Phytotherapy, Pharmacy Management, Marketing & Pharmacoeconomics, and Pharmacovigilance. These modules provide graduates with the skills required to establish their own Pharmacy or to work in the field of drug promotion.
The BUE Pharmacy programme is unique in enabling students to gain additional knowledge and skills in one of four different specialties such as: Industrial Technology, New Drug Delivery & Cosmetics, Biological Drug Development, Chemical Drug Development. The British educational approach of the Programme is offered through the delivery of learning research methodologies in which students are required to design and execute a research graduation project in their chosen specialism.
We maintain a framework that values and promotes integrity, responsibility and leadership as well as provides the tools for ethical decision-making in practice and research.
We promote an environment of civility, diversity and mutual respect by building a sense of community and care among faculty staff and students, in order for these values to be reflected in society.
We strive for excellence in all we do.
