Monash University offers one (1) intake per year only in February for the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) degree. We need details of the completed year 12 results to assess your eligibility for admission.

You can apply online for the coming intake and submit the relevant documents for assessment.

There is no credit exemption given for the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) course and you will have to commence from Year One.

Please refer to the website for more information regarding the English Language requirements: https://www.monash.edu.my/study/entry-requirements/english.

The Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) program is accredited by the Pharmacy Board of Malaysia and recognised by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). The program is also accredited by the Australian Pharmacy Council.

Scholarship

Please refer to the website for more information regarding the scholarship and the application process: https://www.monash.edu.my/student-services/Financial-assistance/scholarships-and-study-loans

The Pharmacy Excellence Scholarship is only applicable for the new intake students (on a yearly basis). It is not applicable for current students.

Intercampus Transfer/ Exchange

Students with a minimum weighted average mark of 60% can apply to transfer to Australia, Parkville campus.

Students can apply for transfer after completion of year 1 or year 2. Transfer is not applicable for third year or fourth year students.

Please refer to the following website for more information on intercampus transfer: Pathways into our courses - Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences

Students can apply for global intercampus exchange (minimum WAM of 60%) to Parkville campus, Australia. The exchange program is only applicable for Year 2 Semester 2, and Year 3 Semester 1.

Only 5 slots are available each semester. Students will pay the usual tuition fee in Malaysia campus. Other costs for exchange, including travel, accommodation, cost of living will be borne by the students themselves.

Please refer to the following website for more information and the application process: https://www.monash.edu.my/study-abroad/outbound/intercampus-exchange

Placement/ Internships

If you transfer to Australia campus (1+3 or 2+2), you will need to complete an internship in Australia in order to be registered with the Pharmacy Board of Australia. If you complete all 4 years of the course in Malaysia campus, you will be required to undergo and complete a one-year training as a Provisionally Registered Pharmacist (PRP), then continue with one year of compulsory service as a Fully Registered Pharmacist (FRP) at the approved training premises.

You are encouraged to refer to the Pharmacy Board of Malaysia website for further information, as terms and conditions may change from time to time.

Students are required to apply for PRP (Provisionally Registered Pharmacist) training on their own.

Based on the latest requirement by the Pharmacy Board of Malaysia (PBM), students need to pass the qualifying exam before they register with PBM. The exam will be arranged with PBM and administered on campus (Monash Malaysia) once a year in the month of March. There is no exam fee incurred. The exam is conducted in English.

Note:

1. The exam is not part of the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) course, so there will NOT be any lecture or class conducted for this.

2. If a student fails the qualifying exam, he/she is still eligible to graduate from the BPharm (Hons) course. They can arrange to sit for the qualifying exam with PBM. Students must pass the exam in order to be a fully registered pharmacist. The maximum number of times for re-sit is three (3).

Unfortunately, Singapore Pharmacy Board only accepts graduates who have completed the entire course duration (4 years) in the Australian campus of Monash University.

Students will be placed in different pharmacy settings for training. These include hospital placements, industrial placements as well as placements in community pharmacies.

Starting from Year 2, students are expected to have placements every semester and each placement duration is between one to four weeks, depending on the specific objectives of each placement. The placement sites where the students will be assigned during their placements duration will highly depend on the sites’ availability and capacity. The placements schedule is incorporated into their timetable, so it will not affect their on-campus classes. The placements will either take place during the semester or in the semester break period, depending on the program timetable. During the placements, students will have exposure to real-world professional practice and be guided by experienced practicing professionals.

Graduates will be able to find employment in the following sectors:

  • Hospitals (government or private)
  • Community pharmacies (such as Watson’s, Guardian, Caring)
  • Government, Ministry of Health (regulatory affairs officer, national pharmaceutical control bureau officer)
  • Pharmaceutical industries (such as Pfizer, GSK, Novartis, Roche, Hovid, CCM, Apex, Kotra Pharma, Pharmaniaga)
  • Academia and research

Other - Course Related

During the final exam, if calculator is permitted, it is strictly within these choices of calculators:

  • Casio FX82AU (any version)
  • Texas Instruments 30XB
  • Casio FX-570EX

Website reference: https://www.monash.edu/pharm/students/undergrad/academic-lifecycle/guidelines/calculator

As for the timetable allocations, students will be pre-grouped by School and you do not have to allocate your timetable. This is to avoid any clash in classes that may be conducted concurrently.

Please contact the respective unit coordinators for further assistance. You may obtain their contact details via the Monash Handbook.
