Interests that are a good basis for this study programme
Before embarking on the study programme, you should be clear that, with pharmacy, you are not picking an “easy” or a quick subject and therefore it requires some perseverance on your behalf. However, if you are interested in chemistry, biology, physiology and how drugs are made and work, this study programme is likely to suit you.
Entry to the bachelor’s programme in Pharmaceutical Sciences is selective and you will need to complete the admissions process. If no admission examination is held, you will need to demonstrate a qualification in biology or in biology combined with other subjects (4 hours per week in the sixth form or supplementary examination).
The admission process takes place only once a year, for enrolment in the winter and summer semesters of the relevant academic year.
During your bachelor’s studies you will need to show evidence of Latin language skills (10 hours per week in the sixth form or supplementary examination).
Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Graz
The study programme involves pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacognosy, pharmaceutical technology and pharmacology. You will begin to acquire basic knowledge of natural sciences before gaining a broad overview of active pharmaceutical components, how they are made and how they work inside the body. Frequent laboratory exercises will round off your education.
Your options in the master’s programme
The master’s programmes in Pharmacy and Chemical and Pharmaceutical Engineering build directly on the bachelor’s programme, enhancing and extending what you have already learned. At the University of Graz you also have the option of interdisciplinary master’s programmes and joint programmes, allowing further scope for individualised and specialised learning.
Preparation for a wide range of career paths
The bachelor’s programme in Pharmaceutical Sciences will not qualify you to work independently as a pharmacist. After graduating, however, you will be able to work in areas such as pharmaceutical research in public and private institutions, the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, health authorities or analytical and diagnostic laboratories.
