How many hours a week will 4th-year students attend their placements?

Students attend placement for 30 hours per week.  Students will attend their Training Establishments for 8.5 hours a day between 8am and 6pm (including an hour for lunch) on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. The exact start and finish time can be agreed upon between the student and Preceptor.

Students will continue to engage with their Schools of Pharmacy while on placement, e.g. through online tutorials. This enables the Schools of Pharmacy to deliver live academic online modules on Wednesdays. 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.
