Postgraduate course information

Postgraduate coursework

UTS: Pharmacy currently offers the Master of Pharmacy (C04252), which is a graduate-entry degree for students who have completed a bachelor's degree in a relevant science discipline (e.g. medical science) who wish to become registered pharmacists.

The Master of Pharmacy has been developed by leading pharmacy teachers and researchers, with the input of a dedicated educational designer. The course is highly integrated, with the content and learning outcomes of each subject linked with the others in the course to provide students with continuity of learning and a thorough understanding of the sciences underpinning pharmacy practice and experience in applying concepts learnt in real-life situations. The course aims to incorporate educational technologies to facilitate student-based learning and reflect the postgraduate level of learning. Problem-based learning is also a major component of the course, preparing students for the workplace.
