Honours in pharmacy

Why study Honours in pharmacy?

This course allows you to apply your skills to a dedicated, year-long research project that will extend your knowledge of pharmacy and enhance your undergraduate qualification. An Honours year involves working with an expert academic to conduct thorough research in a specialised area of our choice. Depending on the project, research methods may include experimental or empirical study, theoretical or inferential work, or case studies.

Career opportunities

An Honours qualification in pharmacy will give you an advantage over other graduates, whether you are seeking a career in pharmacy practice, research or other health professions. Employers recognise the general aptitude developed by an Honours year, including critical analysis, time management and presentation skills
