The Bachelor of Pharmacy is developed in consultation with leading New Zealand pharmacists, and the degree reflects the needs of contemporary and future pharmacy practice. It shifts the focus from traditional drug chemistry and delivery. Our approach incorporates aspects such as drug development, patient use, and the optimisation of pharmacists' patient care through interaction with other health professionals. Themes in population medicine, social science, pharmacology, pharmacy practice and pharmaceutics continue throughout the programme. These themes are supported by courses in biomedical science, medicinal chemistry, immunology and pharmacy practice – incorporating ethical issues related to practice and pharmaceutical management. Entry into the BPharm is limited and competitive. You will be selected on the basis of academic merit and personal qualities exhibited during the admission interview (MMI). There are 100 places available each year.
