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.
