Reading list: - School of Pharmacy

The University has excellent library facilities. All texts associated with the course are listed in the Module Handbook, or other course documentation. Some books will be used extensively as supplementary reading material and you are encouraged to purchase your own copy. We know books are expensive and you are expected to buy only those that are essential. If you are asked to buy a book, do so immediately and get maximum use from it. Sharing the cost of a book with your colleagues may be an economical way of buying an expensive text. Several copies of the recommended texts used on the Pharmacy course are available on short-term loan from the George Green Science Library and the Greenfield Medical Library. We do not recommend that you purchase books prior to starting the course. The Pharmacy Society organize a book sale within the first couple of weeks of term and you will have the opportunity to purchase books at greatly reduced prices. Toole, Glenn.
