Retour en début de pageStudy objectives

The training programme in Industrial Pharmacy prepares the students in the practice of responsibilities linked to the production, control and analysis of medicaments, as well as in the registration, marketing and the pharmacovigilance of these same medicaments.

This programme offers the possibility for the student to complete the theoretical sessions with practical experience in a sector of the student's choice. The complementary master's in Industrial Pharmacy is the direction chosen by those who wish to acquire the qualified status of a pharmacist (pharmacist responsible for the conformity of the medicaments produced by a pharmaceutical firm - Royal Decree of 06 June, 1960) by completing a university training programme. In order to obtain this official recognition by the Ministry of Public Health, the degree course must be completed by a period of practical experience of 6 months in one or several pharmaceutical firms granted official authorisation for the industrial fabrication of medicaments in accordance with the directives laid down by the Royal Decree of 14th August, 1989.

The duration of the studies and the training programme is one year, full-time. On the recommendation of the Industrial Pharmacist Management Committee, the study programme can be spread over two academic years, subject to the authorisation of the President of the School of Pharmacy in the case where the student is professionally active elsewhere or if his particular situation is considered to justify this.

The programme comprises 2 parts :
• the first part is made up of a core syllabus organised by the three universities. This core syllabus is divided into 7 modules (A to G), each including theoretical sessions as well as seminars. The total timetable volume of this core syllabus amounts to 450 hours (45 ECTS), with each university taking in charge one third, or 150 hours of the programme.
