When most people think of pharmacy they picture their local pharmacist, dispensing general medicine from behind a pharmacy counter. However, pharmacy has evolved to include and exceed that realm of career prospects, so here are a few reasons why you should study pharmacy and pharmacology.
- Growing Industry
With the increased need for medicinal drug research, pharmaceutical sales, formulation chemists and regulatory and consultancy positions there is a growing demand for degrees in pharmacy and pharmacology.
- Social involvement
Most people in the pharmacy and pharmacology industry interact with a large range of people on a daily basis, whether it be in a corporate or community aspect. This means your degree allows you to incorporate a strong social element into your career and will make your work more interactive.
- International connections
While the world may be diverse, science transcends country boarders. Not only will you be able to undertake some of your work placement overseas, your skillset and knowledge can be utilised in any country around the world.
- Varied professional network
From the moment you start your studies your cohort and teachers will be comprised of people from different backgrounds and cultures, with most of our teaching staff having different paths into the industry. Our academics are dedicated to supporting your learning and career opportunities and assist you with expanding your professional network.
- Placement opportunities
The demand for placement students in this industry grows every day, allowing you to get industry experience while studying. This also gives you the chance to trial the different career pathways in community, hospital and corporate settings.
