Bachelor of Pharmacy (IHCAP)

Bachelor of Pharmacy (IHCAP)

The Indigenous Health Careers Access Program (IHCAP) is designed to increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student success in pursuing a health career. This program is the only one of its kind in Australia and provides a free one-month orientation course where you will complete the subject English for Academic Purposes.

IHCAP then continues to provide you with the practical skills and knowledge to better cope with the demands of university study.

Pharmacy is the branch of medical science concerned with the sources, nature, properties, preparation and use of medicinal drugs. Pharmacists are key professionals in the health care system who formulate and dispense drugs, and play a central role in providing advice on the management of a patient’s medication.

The Bachelor of Pharmacy (IHCAP) requires you to complete 108 credit points. This will take 5 years if you study full time.
