The Master of Pharmacy (International) at the University of Technology Sydney is an accredited three-year graduate-entry degree leading to eligibility for registration as a pharmacist.  

Visit the official programme website for more information


The Master of Pharmacy (International) at the University of Technology Sydney is an Australian first, extending the Master of Pharmacy (C04252) program to include a one-year overseas clinical placement. This allows students to expand their knowledge even further, gaining practice-based experience of pharmacy in a global context and an understanding of the international factors that influence pharmacy practice and healthcare provision. Overseas clinical placements include those in Canada, Germany or the United Kingdom. Language and culture subjects cater to both beginners and students with prior language knowledge. 

 The course is innovative and practice-based in approach, building on students' strong scientific foundation to provide specialist, comprehensive knowledge relevant to contemporary pharmacy practice. In addition to the pharmaceutical sciences, this includes professional pharmacy services, integrated therapeutics and the unique capstone subject, 96014 Molecule to Market, led by industry leader Adjunct Professor John Montgomery. Two elective subjects provide students with the opportunity to individualise their studies with their choice of any available postgraduate subject offered at UTS.

Course aims 

The course aims to prepare graduates to be registered pharmacists who can succeed in a global context and work in expanded roles within changing medical, social, political and regulatory contexts. This is achieved by going beyond traditional educational models so students engage in self-directed and problem-based learning to develop leadership skills, gain experience with emerging technologies, develop independent thinking and cultural awareness, facilitate practice-based experience in pharmacy in another country and build a network of internationally recognised researchers, teachers and pharmacists.


Career options include: community pharmacy; professional pharmacy services; hospital pharmacy; drug research, design and development; professional roles in pharmaceutical industry; primary health care; consultancy; education; government and policy; the armed forces; and non-profit organisations.
