Pharmacy

The School was founded in 2003 and has quickly risen to become one of the top pharmacy schools in the country, number one in the Guardian University Guide (2013). Our Pharmacy degree is highly acclaimed for its innovative content and teaching methods and was reaccredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council in 2012 with no conditions or recommendations.

The Schools of Study at UEA teach thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students each year across the four faculties of our campus in Norwich.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Pharmacy.

If you haven’t already, check out our School pages on the UEA website.

In the meantime, don’t forget to Register Online to get access to your timetable once it becomes available, and log in to Blackboard our virtual learning environment.

Once you have registered online you will also need to attend a registration event (unless you are an undergraduate home student living in UEA accommodation, since you are registered automatically when you pick up your room keys).

  1. Welcome to the School of Pharmacy, we are really pleased that you have decided to study with us. My colleagues and I look forward to working with you, ensuring that you have all the support you need to be successful in your studies.

    Your first week at UEA will be a busy and exciting one. You will meet many new people and there will be a lot of information to take in. To get the most from your first few weeks here I urge you to:

    • Attend as many of the welcome events as you can
    • Familiarise yourself with our IT systems. E:Vision, the SCI Student Zone on Blackboard and the UEA Portal are all critical to your time here
    • Take some time to familiarise yourself with both the University and the School’s commitment to equality and diversity
    • And most importantly speak to as many people as possible and ask questions!

    I do hope you will enjoy being a student here and that you will take full advantage of studying at one of the UK’s leading Schools of Pharmacy.

    I wish you every success in your studies and look forward to meeting you in person soon.

    Professor Mark Searcey

    Head of School

Steps to Success - Getting started in your School of Study

Step One

You will have received an email from UEA confirming your place. Follow the links to register online and set up your IT account, username and password.

Step Two

Go to E:Vision to view your personalised timetable information. There will be UEA wide events for all students as well as our School events and activities.

Step Three

Go to the SCI Student Zone.This is our area for all Science students to find common and School only information. It is an important reference area not only in your first few weeks but also during all your time here. Right now, your School areas on the SCI Student Zone will also have more information about any essential or recommended reading for your course (if needed before you arrive) or if you have optional module choices to make in your first year, there will be some more information about that. Most Schools have a ‘New Student Information’ area but do take time to browse the other tabs, including the general Science Student Information tab. 

Follow these instructions once you have registered online:

  • Go to https://portal.uea.ac.uk/
  • Select BLACKBOARD from the 3 orange buttons towards the top of the screen
  • Type in your UEA username and password, and select Sign In
  • At the top right of the screen select SCI Student Zone

Step Four

Double check you have done all of above! Keep regularly checking your timetable and School Student Zones up to and during arrival week as sometimes things are added or rooms can change.

Please take a look at your induction programme below. Your schedule is available on e:Vision.

Immunisation and Occupational Health

The Occupational Health Pre-Registration Assessment Form needs to be countersigned by your current GP (doctor). This is necessary in order to verify the information you have supplied about your health and medical conditions.

We appreciate that for some students who are coming to study at UEA from abroad, it may be more difficult to arrange for a doctor to countersign your form. However, we request that you make great efforts to do so: if you are not able to arrange for your home doctor to countersign your form then it will be necessary for you to ask your new doctor (GP) in Norwich. Your new doctor will not have your medical notes and will only be able to state that they are unable to comment on any conditions you may or may not have.

In addition, as forms must be handed in to Occupational Health before the start of term, it is possible that there will be a delay in completion of your form which may result in you not being able to attend placement and therefore jeopardise your place on the course.

Occupational Health also require your full immunisation history. If you are unable to obtain this information, we will have to assume that you have not had any of the vaccinations required for your course and it will be necessary for these to be done with Occupational Health when you arrive at UEA.

 


DBS Checks

Students on these courses will also need to complete a DBS Check. Information on that is in our document on the side.

Some of the scientific concepts covered in the course require the use of mathematics, so if you have not studied any maths since GCSE, we recommend that you review GCSE maths to refresh your knowledge.
