Five-Year Fully Integrated Master's Degree Programme in Pharmacy

Since September 2015, the five-year pharmacist qualification is a PSI-accredited five-year fully integrated Master’s degree programme in pharmacy.

This new programme, involves the integration and dispersal of pratice placements for students throughout the five years (rather than focussed on the final year).  The restructured qualification enables placements of varying durations in the three main pharmacy practices of community, hospital and industry. These changes will benefit both the student learning experience and will also benefit the health system.

On successful completion of the five-year programme, graduates will then be eligible to apply to the PSI for registration. View the placement structure of this five year programme.  

This new programme has replaced the current '4+1' structure that consists of a 4-year Bachelor degree programme followed by a one-year internship programmeStudents already undertaking the ‘4+1’ structure will not be affected by this change.
