Studying pharmacy at Monash not only offers you the chance to experience life in another country, but it also gives you the opportunity to qualify as a pharmacist much more quickly than you would in Canada and begin your career earlier.

If you hold a relevant degree, you may be able to enter into the third year of the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours), receiving credit for much of the first two years of the program, which means you can finish your degree in only two years!

Monash University offers the 1# entry-to-practice pharmacy program in the world

In the 2019 QS World University Rankings by Subject, Monash offers the #1 Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) / Master of Pharmacy degree. The QS World Rankings by Subject assesses university performance in pharmacy and pharmacology together.

At Monash you’ll have access to some of the country’s best-equipped facilities, alongside innovative teaching technologies such as MyDispense—a web-based program that combines more than 300 virtual patients and 1,500 pharmacy products to provide authentic dispensing practice. You will also undertake work placements in hospitals and community pharmacies, learning about primary health care, drug information and clinical pharmacy services in different practice environments. With an aging population placing ever greater stress upon the health system, the demand for pharmacists’ skills and the scope of their role can only grow. Monash gives your career as a pharmacist the best possible start.​
