Students attend placement for 30 hours per week. These hours must be completed between 8am and 6pm on weekdays. The exact start and finish time can be agreed upon between the student and Preceptor.
In addition, students must be given at least a half-day (no less than 4 hours in a row) off each week for their academic work. This can be on any weekday.
Students will continue to engage with their Schools of Pharmacy while on placement, e.g. through online tutorials. There is a university requirement of 30 hours on experiential learning placement, 10 hours directed study and 10 hours self-directed study every week for 4th-Year students.
