The Master of Pharmacy is an accredited two-year, graduate-entry degree leading to eligibility for registration as a pharmacist. Innovative and practice-based in approach, the course builds on students' strong scientific foundation to provide specialist, comprehensive knowledge relevant to contemporary pharmacy practice. In addition to the pharmaceutical sciences, this includes professional pharmacy services, integrated therapeutics and the unique capstone subject, 96014 Molecule to Market, led by industry leader Adjunct Professor John Montgomery. Two elective subjects provide students with the opportunity to individualise their studies with their choice of any available postgraduate subject offered at UTS.

Developed by leading pharmacy academics and our expert educational designer, the course's subject matter is delivered in an integrated, student-focused manner, making use of cutting-edge technologies and strong links with the pharmacy profession. Expert guest lecturers and practitioner teachers are utilised throughout the course to ensure relevance and real-world application of content.

Students undertake clinical practice in a wide variety of settings sourced by UTS throughout the degree. This includes a guaranteed hospital pharmacy placement. On-campus learning takes place in the Graduate School of Health's state-of-the-art education and research facility, which opened in 2015.
