Accreditation Standards

It is a duty of the PSI to review the programmes of education and training being provided by each of the three schools of pharmacy in Ireland. The pharmacy degree programmes are assessed against the PSI’s approved accreditation standards to ensure programmes are meeting the relevant criteria as defined by the PSI Council.

The accreditation standards are designed to provide a description of what is expected of the provider responsible for the teaching, learning and assessment associated with the programme.

Integrated Five Year MPharm Programme Accreditation Standards

These accreditation standards for the five-year degree programme in pharmacy underpin the accreditation process of the five-year integrated Masters programmes in pharmacy.

A guidance document accompanies the Accreditation Standards for the five-year fully integrated Master’s Degree Programmes in Pharmacy. This provides information to each school of pharmacy, with regard to what types of evidence can be used to demonstrate compliance with the accreditation standards.
