Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00301J

This course offers practical experience as well as a theoretical grounding in the discipline of pharmacy and is the only undergraduate program in Western Australia that is recognised for registration as a pharmacist. It is taught with a hands-on approach, with a range of laboratories and facilities available to enhance teaching and provide essential practical skills. Most practising pharmacists are engaged in the preparation and dispensing of medicines, as well as patient-focussed care, including advice to patients, their carers and other health-care providers. Pharmacists also may be involved in specialised dispensing or compounding, monitoring of drug therapy and the development, testing or manufacture of medicines. All students in this course are enrolled in a four-year honours program and will be able to demonstrate an advanced level of pharmacy skills and knowledge on completion of the degree.


Detailed information about the course structure is available through official Curtin pages:
