Course overview

Take a Google Maps virtual tour of our model pharmacy suite.

Pharmacists study aspects of how and why drugs work, how they are formulated and administered, and how they are used in the treatment of disease.

While pharmacists often work in community and hospital pharmacies, they can also work in areas such as research and development, participating in activities ranging from drug discovery and formulation, to assessing the therapeutic benefits of different drugs.

Your first year is interprofessional and taken with students from other health sciences degrees. In your following years, you will study pharmacy primary care, pharmaceutics, antimicrobial chemotherapy, pharmacology, pharmacotherapy and pharmaceutical practice.

You will complete a minimum of 12 weeks of clinical placements during the course. There are opportunities for you to take your placements interstate and overseas in hospitals, the community or in industry.
