Pharmacists do so much more than dispense drugs, they improve the health and wellbeing of our community and strive to create a positive impact on people's lives all around the wolrd!
In the UTAS Bachelor of Pharmacy degree you will learn how medicines are produced, how they work in the body and are used in modern society. You'll also learn about working with other health professionals to make sure patients receive the best care.
The University of Tasmania’s Bachelor of Pharmacy is a leading degree in clinical pharmacy. The time that our students invest in work placements in hospital and community pharmacies is one of the highest of all pharmacy degrees in Australia. These placements give our students an edge in clinical knowledge and practice, and allow students plenty of time to apply what they learn in the class room*.
By working closely with pharmacists and other health professionals during their degree, our graduates are among Australia's best, and enjoy a very high employment rate. We are proud of the pharmacists that graduate from UTAS.

Sam is a Pharmacist, Business Owner, Chemmart National Board Member, and a valued mentor to students at the School of Pharmacy, UTAS.
“People always need health, so Pharmacy is an essential profession; and that was why I made the move to Hobart to study a Bachelor of Pharmacy with UTAS. It offers a solid career path, a defined career with great employment opportunities and a decent salary.
Today I am very happy in my career. I am not only a Registered Pharmacist, but also a staff manager, small business owner, board member and a mentor. Pharmacy has given me much more than a career, it has provided me with opportunities I didn’t know existed. Previously, I would have suggested pharmacy to prospective students for its career stability and remuneration. But now I think it is the fact that I am helping people, and the majority of these people really appreciate what we can do for them that has made this such a fulfilling career.
Wining Pharmacy of the Year with my business partners at Chemmart Sorell has definitely been a career highlight for me. It was awarded based on our business and succession planning, as well as the large range of health services we offer, recognising my successes within two areas that I am really interested in, business and health. ”
