About Us

We have over 20 years’ experience in delivering postgraduate courses to pharmacists and other healthcare professionals. We are proud of our highly acclaimed reputation which led in 2014 to the creation of The Centre for Professional Development and Lifelong Learning; now hosted by the School of Pharmacy & Bioengineering at Keele University.  We have extensive experience of designing programmes of study that are easily accessible and relevant to working healthcare professionals. We offer highly flexible learning programmes, delivered principally by open and distance learning. Students can choose a fixed pathway as their preferred route of study, or, by selecting the CPD Plus+ route, may ‘pick and mix’ modules from across our programmes to build up their own pathway to a Certificate, Diploma or an MSc award. Students who choose the CPD Plusroute have flexibility in the timescales for their studies with us. Alternatively, you may choose to complete a single CPD Plus+ stand alone course at any point in your career to meet your own professional development needs, or a CPD Short course without the need to work towards a postgraduate award. The Independent Prescribing Preparatory Course for pharmacists can be integrated into any Diploma pathway. This route will give you the professional award necessary for registration with the General Pharmaceutical Council as a prescriber as well as an academic Diploma award.

However you choose to study with us, you will be fully supported by our team of experienced tutors. This starts from the moment you are considering how to meet your professional development needs, until you complete your studies with us having gained the learning experience and qualifications you desire.

Due to the distance learning nature and flexibility of our courses, a number of our programmes are open to International Students.
