Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) / Master of Pharmacy

The work of pharmacists changes people's lives for the better and has done so for centuries.

But there is still so much more to do. An ageing global population, increasingly complex and personalised medicines, as well as a move towards team-based 'integrated' healthcare mean that the challenges and opportunities facing pharmacists are greater than ever before.

That's why we recently created the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) / Master of Pharmacy, with the aim of equipping you with the power to tackle these challenges head on and build healthier, happier communities.

The Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) / Master of Pharmacy

Same duration, higher qualification

Every pharmacy degree in Australia offers a five-year pathway to registration as a pharmacist. Our pathway takes the same amount of time start to finish, but instead of graduating with one degree, you’ll graduate with two: a master as well as a bachelor (with honours). In other words, you’ll have an advantage over every other pharmacy graduate in the country. And the fifth year of the course entails an internship, so not only do you get valuable work experience, you also get paid for it.

Flexibility to suit your needs

We think our Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) / Master of Pharmacy is a pretty good deal for anyone who aims to register and work as a pharmacist is Australia. However we also understand that every student has different circumstances; perhaps you're thinking of taking your pharmacy degree global, or if you're an international student, aiming to register to work back in your home country. Or perhaps you're just not ready to commit to five years of study quite yet.

If this sounds like you, we have the provision for students to enrol in our four-year Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) in the first instance. Upon completing the fourth year of the program, you'll automatically qualify for a place in the Master of Pharmacy.
