Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science

The Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science is a single three year degree. It can also be combined with chemical engineering as the five year double degree Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science. The single degree is managed by the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. The double degree is managed by the Faculty of Engineering. In 2013, a four year honours degree was introduced, combining the Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science degree with a year of research focus.

Course planning: single degree

From 2018, Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science students commenced a newly developed degree with unit code, title and curriculum content changes. Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science students should follow the course requirements as stated in the Undergraduate Handbook of the year in which they commenced the course. This is because course requirements can change each year.
