The Bachelor of Pharmacy is a four-year, full-time professional degree combining advanced scientific investigation with training in clinical practice and optimum patient care. Specifically, it covers the study of the chemical, physical, pharmaceutical, and pharmacological properties of medicinal substances and the application of these in the pharmacy profession.
Students connect with and learn from academics who are experts in their fields, and have access to the latest technology, facilities and teaching laboratories.
Course ContentThe first year is a foundation year in which students study biology, chemistry, and basic pharmaceutical sciences and are introduced to the profession of pharmacy. The remaining three years are devoted to higher levels of biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences, together with specialised clinical pharmacy studies. During third and fourth year, considerable time is spent in clinical placements in community and hospital pharmacies, where valuable practical experience is gained.
