Why study pharmacy?
Pharmacists play a central part in primary health care teams. Working alongside doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, they're essential in helping people manage their health.
Our pharmacy graduates are globally recognised for the quality of their clinical pharmacy skills and ability to transform pharmacy practice. They have gone on to work in the wider community, hospitals, research facilities and even the military.
We have good relationships with clinical pharmacy service providers and leading pharmacists. And our staff stay on top of what is current in the industry.
We aim to produce the best Bachelor of Pharmacy graduates in Australia.
