This graduate entry master course enables science graduates to become registered pharmacists. It will provide you with a comprehensive theoretical base, including chemical, biological, physiological, pharmaceutical and pharmacotherapeutics studies.

In this course you’ll complete two additional study periods over the summer period, as well as two usual semesters each year. The first study period is an intensive six-week training program involving 30 hours weekly contact and continuous assessment. In this period you’ll be introduced to important concepts in pharmaceutics, pharmaceutical chemistry and pharmaceutical practice.

The rest of your first year will focus on pharmaceutical science, pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacology and pharmaceutical practice. At the end of your first year you’ll complete a community pharmacy placement under the supervision of a practicing pharmacist to develop skills in the clinical setting.

In your second year you’ll focus on pharmacotherapy and develop research skills. You’ll also complete a hospital placement to cement your practical skills.

Throughout this course you’ll use high quality laboratories and facilities designed to enhance teaching and provide you with essential practical skills. The school laboratories include a model dispensary, a manufacturing laboratory, an asepsis suite and laboratories for microbiological, chemical and pharmacological investigations.

Professional recognition

This course is accredited by the Australian Pharmacy Council.

Graduates are required to complete a preregistration training period and register as a pharmacist before being able to commence practice in most areas of the profession. Graduates are able to register to practice in all states and territories in Australia and New Zealand.

This course provides a great stepping stone to registration in other countries throughout Asia and in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Some countries may require fulfilment of additional practical training programs.

Career opportunities

Graduates are both highly employable and sought after. As a graduate, you may seek a career in health care working in the fields of community, hospital or consult pharmacy.

The role of the pharmacist within community pharmacy has expanded to include assisting patients with the management of their chronic diseases, such as obesity, asthma and diabetes. In the future, pharmacists in the primary care setting are going to become increasingly involved in the care of patients through multidisciplinary teams. The setting of practice of pharmacy will expand from the community pharmacist to include medical clinics and the patient’s home. The role of pharmacists as prescribers is currently under investigation.

Within hospitals, pharmacists provide a diverse range of services from drug distribution and dispensing, provision of drug information and education, through to ward-based clinical pharmacy services where they participate in patient care as part of a team. Hospital pharmacists may also engage in quality assurance programs and clinical research.

Consultant pharmacists provide medication management review services. They work in collaboration with patients and their doctors to ensure the patient achieves the best outcomes from their drug therapy. Such pharmacists work in aged care facilities and/or patients’ homes.

Graduates may also develop a career in the pharmaceutical industry which employs pharmacists in a number of areas including research roles in the development of medicines, production of pharmaceuticals, quality assurance, regulatory services, marketing and drug information.

Graduates may also work for the State or Federal Government in regulatory and policy roles.

Companies around the world are now looking for a different kind of manager. They need people with different skillsets that can look at situations and opportunities in unique ways. Our MBA degrees will give you the tools to stand out from the rest.

Upon completion, you will be able to effect positive change, both in your own professional practice, and within your organisation. On a personal level, you’ll be able to utilise new skills and methods to improve your efficiency, your critical engagement, and your ability to instigate change.

Successful improvements in your personal professional practice will then benefit your organisation. The MBA degree alone can open doors, but the possibilities opened to you by utilising your skills to improve your organisation are even more impressive.

Already a managing director, in charge of your own company? The MBA degree can still benefit you internally and externally. The knowledge and skills you will pick up over the course of your degree can allow you to become an industry leader, growing your company’s reputation through innovation. The accompanying benefits of this could help cement your company’s industry position for years to come.

COURSE OVERVIEW

This course commences in January each year. This intensely practical and pioneering course aims to prepare students for a successful future in multi-camera studio entertainment production. Students are taught by NFTS staff and visiting Industry Professionals and have hands-on experience of a variety of studio roles as well as in their specialisation.

Students will apply for, and be accepted onto the course in one of three craft specialisations:

I. Cameras and Lighting
Practise the core skills of TV studio camera operators, positioning the camera, framing and focus. Learn to use broadcast cameras in a multi-camera studio, repositioning and changing shot as the director demands while the vision mixer cuts and mixes the show. Learn to develop shots, moving with artists or in sympathy with music to create dynamic and exciting television. Begin to light simple interviews and more complex multi-camera lighting techniques. You’ll need a passion for pictures, quick reactions, clear and proactive thinking with excellent co-ordination and a good sense of musical rhythm.

II. Vision Mixing
Train on sophisticated broadcast vision mixing consoles, build and realise complex live visual effects to the director’s brief. Using these high-end production tools, Vision Mixing is like editing - but in real time! Cut, mix and wipe between cameras, pre-edited clips and other video sources live. Learn how to mix a variety of genres from situation comedy to fast paced entertainment and music shows adding digital effects and captioning in real time. You’ll need to be logical, quick thinking, calm under pressure and have an excellent feel for timing and rhythm, both dramatic and musical.

III. Sound (in a broadcast studio environment)
Sound carries the story, sets the mood and the tempo. It provides the enabling structure against which TV pictures can shine. Good sound is essential to a TV programme. Learn how to choose and place microphones for the best results for a variety of shows including live music. Train to use ‘Fisher booms’ - in great demand for sitcoms and soaps - to pick up drama dialogue. Mix studio sound in real time using sophisticated broadcast desks. Enhance the show with spot effects, music cues and audio processing to create atmosphere and energy. Learn how to manage TV comms including studio talkback systems allowing key production team members to communicate and collaborate effectively. You’ll need to be a quick, logical thinker, have a ‘good ear’ and a passion for high quality sound.

These are the core disciplines of multi camera studio operations and people trained at a high level in these craft areas are hotly in demand.

CURRICULUM

Students will be exposed to the creative challenge of working across a range of entertainment programming, including: Situation Comedy, Magazine Shows, Talent Shows, Panel Shows, Game Shows etc.

The award focuses on developing students’ specific capabilities, in the following areas:
-The language of entertainment television so that they can work effectively within production teams

-A critical awareness of the production workflow and the impact of multiplatform on production

Modules include:
-The Grammar of Television Entertainment
-Media Technology

The six week internship at Sky is constituted of two distinct elements. Firstly the student will shadow a Sky Production Services member of staff working in their specialisation (Vision Mixer, Sound, Camera/Lighting). This will cement the students understanding of the wide range of professional practices and competencies associated with each role. Secondly, students will undertake a range of simulated exercises (designed by the NFTS with Sky involvement) to hone their craft and understanding on the Sky equipment.

At the end of the course, students will be well placed to work professionally in their chosen job role within broadcast production. They will also have a thorough understanding of the television production process encompassing everything from the creative to the technical and the business aspects.

Unlike other schools, all production costs are met by the School. In addition you will be given a cash Production Budget. NFTS students are engaged in more productions as part of the curriculum than any of our competitors.
