Monash University offers $4000 relocation grant for international pharmacy students
Studying pharmacy at Monash University 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.
Australian universities offer pharmacy degrees at an undergraduate level, which means you can enter straight from high school without needing to complete a university degree first.
Monash University is the No.1 pharmacy school in Australia, top 2 in the world
In the 2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject, only Harvard University ranked higher than Monash for Pharmacy and Pharmacology. 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 healthcare, 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.
If studying at the number 1 pharmacy school in Australia isn’t enough, Monash also offers a $4,000 relocation grant to all international pharmacy students.
