The Bachelor of Pharmacy at the University of Sydney is a four-year, full-time professional degree combining advanced scientific investigation with training in clinical practice and optimum patient care.

University of Sydney Bachelor of Pharmacy Overview

In your first year you will study biology and chemistry and be introduced to pharmacy through foundational and social pharmacy studies.  The remaining three years of the course are devoted to higher levels of biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences together with specialized clinical pharmacy studies. In senior years, considerable time is spent in clinical placements in community and hospital pharmacies, where valuable practical experience is gained.

You will have the opportunity to undertake study in a pharmacy elective in your fourth year of study (industrial pharmacy or international) or to complete fourth-year advanced study and undertake an individual research project as an honours candidate.

An honours program is offered to high-performing students in the final year of study and focuses on research into one of the Faculty’s key research themes: Cancer, Cardiovascular, Health Services and Patient Safety and Respiratory.
