Bachelor Of Pharmacy (Lateral)

Graduates of pharmacy degrees work right at the heart of human healthcare, taking on roles relating to the design and development of new treatments, prescription and care management, and advising on the range of medical options available.

If you study pharmacy, you will typically take modules focusing on chemistry, human biology and physiology, pharmaceutics (how medicines are made) and pharmacology (how drugs interact with the body). Most pharmacy degrees combine academic research with more vocational training and professional pharmacy skills, such as learning about legal and ethical issues, and how to interact with patients. You will learn all about prescriptions, drugs, medications and clinical practice, and practice responding to different scenarios. As you study pharmacy, you may have the opportunity to specialize in a particular type of role (such as new medicine development or patient care), or in a particular field of medical care (such as infectious diseases, or care of the elderly).

Degree courses can be of a yearly or semester pattern. Most yearly pattern courses have a duration of four years. The diploma programmes that follow a semester pattern have a planned duration of four years. Students with a PUC/10+2 qualification can be accepted into the course. A Post-Graduate degree can be opted for after attaining the Bachelor’s degree, M.Pharm or a job. If you want to study pharmacy abroad, or would like to be able to work in different countries after graduating, it’s important to check where your qualification will be recognized.

Diploma courses can be of a yearly or semester pattern. Most yearly pattern courses have a duration of three years. The diploma programmes that follow a semester pattern have a planned duration of three years, with three years of study.
