Why study Bachelor of Pharmacy?

Pharmacists make a difference to people's health in hospitals, aged-care facilities and local communities. Our course gives you the knowledge, experience and expertise you need to make a difference from moment you graduate as a medicine expert and healthcare professional.

We are pioneers in pharmacy education, offering the longest-established pharmacy course in Australia and the most progressive and modern.

The course incorporates innovative technology, such as MyDispense, a safe environment to learn about interacting with patients and other health professionals when dispensing medicines, and Pharmville, a whole database of fictional patients with 'real' health needs.

You'll gain work experience in hospitals, community pharmacies and rural settings - some students have worked with the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Or you might choose our International Experience Elective to practice pharmacy in the UK, USA or Singapore.

Little wonder we produce such graduates as Vicki Lui, who enjoys the challenge of dispensing medicines effectively and safely at the busy Box Hill Hospital, or Michael Nunan, who travelled to the Solomon Islands on a scholarship to learn how medicine can improve health. He's now the Pharmacy Support Officer for country's Ministry of Health.

We can give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to make a difference too.

This course is also offered in Malaysia. Find out more about studying this course at Monash University Malaysia.
