New in 2011
The School of Medical Sciences at RMIT University is pleased to be offering a new Bachelor of Pharmacy (BP271) program in 2011.
Based at RMIT's Bundoora campus and with a small intake of approximately 40 students, the four-year program becomes the second Pharmacy degree in Melbourne and the first new program in Victoria in over 100 years.
With newly-developed and modern teaching modules that prepare pharmacists using an integrated study platform, the degree features clinical placement opportunities in both hospital and community pharmacies, as well as the pharmaceutical industry.
The Australian Pharmacy Council (APC) has granted RMIT preliminary approval for the program as a qualification intended to lead to becoming a pharmacist in Australia and New Zealand. Recognition of the degree as an appropriate qualification is subject to the granting of provisional accreditation. RMIT becomes eligible to apply for provisional accreditation after about 12 months of teaching.
Current Year 12 prerequisites
Units 3 and 4 English (any), Chemistry and Mathematics (any) or Physics
Applications must be through VTAC (VTAC code 31191).
