About this course

The Bachelor of Pharmacy with Honours (BPharm(Hons)) programme comprises the standard Bachelor of Pharmacy (BPharm) programme with additional training in advanced research design, methodologies, techniques and analysis resulting in a research dissertation.

The main objective of the BPharm(Hons) degree is to provide education and training in research to a small, academically select group of undergraduate pharmacy students who have achieved a high GPA and have an interest in research careers. The Honours programme will provide additional learning opportunities to outstanding students that will be of benefit to them when applying for competitive postgraduate positions, scholarships and funding as well as meeting the University's criteria for direct entry to PhD programmes. BPharm(Hons) students can also apply to go through the process to be registered as Pharmacists in New Zealand.

The BPharm(Hons) is a four year programme with the fourth year having 144-points which includes a 36-point research component.
