The School where students and teachers continue to make lifelong industry connections
The School of Pharmacy and Pharmacology provides a transformational experience that builds students’ self-confidence, employability, and capacity to apply their skills and knowledge to a range of contexts.
The School of Pharmacy and Pharmacology offers a personalised and contemporary learning experience. Technology-Engaged Learning (TEL), Interprofessional Learning (IPL), Simulated Learning, Gamification, and Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) are integrated throughout programs to enhance the student experience and maximise learning outcomes.
