The Sydney Pharmacy School applications for the 2016 intake are now officially open via OzTREKK!
The Bachelor of Pharmacy at the Sydney Pharmacy School covers the study of the chemical, physical, pharmaceutical, and pharmacological properties of medicinal substances and the application of these in the pharmacy profession.
This pharmacy degree requires four years of full-time study for both the pass degree and the honours degree. There are two semesters per year and no mid-year entry. The first year is a foundation year in which students study biology, chemistry, and basic pharmaceutical sciences, and are introduced to pharmacy. The remaining three years are devoted to higher levels of biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences, together with specialized clinical pharmacy studies. During third and fourth years, considerable time is spent in clinical placements in community and hospital pharmacies, where valuable practical experience is gained.
