Minister of Education approves Leiden Pharmacy master’s


The Minister of Education, Culture and Science has approved the application for the master’s programme in Pharmacy in Leiden. This is an important step on the road to a new master’s programme.

From the 2016 academic year
The Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) and Leiden University (Faculty of Science (W&N)) have the ambition to train students as pharmacists starting from the 2016 academic year. Before the programme can begin, it first has to go through the approval procedure of the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO).

The aim is to create a distinctive Leiden programme that trains patient-focused pharmacists. The new programme combines the strong scientific basis of the existing Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences (BPS) with the patient-focused elements of Medicine. -
