The Bachelor of Pharmacy is a four year undergraduate degree. This was a new course at the University of Canberra for 2013, and incorporates lectures, practical and tutorial sessions, and Pharmacy-specific work experience placements. These placements will include range of practice settings
in public hospitals and community pharmacies in the ACT and region, around Australia, or in our own Faculty of Health student-led clinics.
Students will acquire foundation knowledge and skills in basic and life sciences and learn how to apply this to the clinical reasoning, treatment and evaluation skills required by a pharmacist. The curriculum is evidence based and research led.
The Bachelor of Pharmacy program has been granted accreditation (with conditions) by the Australian Pharmacy Council and is approved by the Pharmacy Board of Australia as a qualification leading to registration as a pharmacist in Australia.
Some university accommodation may be available – conditions apply. Visit the UniLodge website.
Graduates can work in hospitals, community pharmacies, pharmaceutical industry, aged care, consultancy, health promotion, government, community aid, schools, academia or policy development.
A variety of postgraduate qualifications are available, including the Master of Pharmacy (Research) and Doctor of Philosophy. The Faculty of Health also offers a Master of Pharmacy, which, like the Bachelor of Pharmacy is an entry course for students with a degree in the health sciences.
