A career in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry is the objective of many science graduates. A module titled Good Manufacturing Practice aims to prepare third year science undergraduates for working in this highly regulated industry.The module delivery and assessment methods have been designed to familiarise students with good manufacturing regulations while also ensuring students complete tasks typically required by the pharmaceutical industry. Teaching and assessment methods aspire to be active, diverse and inclusive of all learning styles. One third of lectures are practical in an attempt to apply the theoretical syllabus to real life work tasks and help the student recognise the relevance of the module including the legislation. Active learning also aims to improve participation and engagement with a subject which traditionally is very theoretical. Feedback from industry and students with respect to relevance to career opportunities has been positive to date.This poster outlines how a significant proportion of the learning outcomes of Good Manufacturing Practice module can be achieved through in class generation of the most common documents required in a GMP regulated facility while equipping the science graduate with skills required by potential employers.
