Graduate entry pharmacy

One of the most popular pathway programs we offer to help students into Pharmacy is our Graduate Entry Program.

The program gives students who have completed a science-based degree with exceptional marks to enter the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) in the third year.

Eligibility

You are eligible for the Graduate Entry Program if you have a minimum average of 70% and have graduated from one of the below degrees in the last ten years:

  • Bachelor of Biomedical Science/Bachelor of Biomedicine
  • Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences
  • Bachelor of Science

Because you’ll enter the degree in the third year, you'll only need to complete two years of study to qualify for the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours). You then complete a paid internship and sit a Pharmacy Board examination to become a practicing Pharmacist.
