    Chris Simpson

    Bachelor of Pharmacy

    Other universities don’t have the experiences and exposure we have and it shows when we graduate. I like the hands-on aspect – it’s different from being in the classroom. Experiencing it in real life builds on what you learn at uni. When you step into the real clinical world you get that full exposure to everything

    Kiralee Gross

    Bachelor of Pharmacy

    A lot of people think that pharmacists just stick a label on the box, but that's not the case at all. There’s just so many different opportunities available to pharmacists that not many people are aware of. It’s a really interesting degree that can take you many places.
