Around 45 places are available at Orange Campus and 65 places at Wagga Wagga Campus.
There are no formal prerequisites for the Bachelor of Pharmacy but, as it is a science based course, it is assumed that students will have studied English Standard, chemistry and mathematics at Year 12 level. If you have not studied chemistry in Year 12 and are accepted into the course, it is strongly recommended that you undertake a STUDY LINK course before commencing.
Entry to the course is competitive and an ATAR of at least 85.00, or Credit level GPA, is expected. In addition to completing your application online through UAC, if you wish to strengthen your application, you are encouraged to demonstrate your commitment to a career in Pharmacy by submitting the optional Supplementary Application Form, available from August 1. For more information and to access the form, see the Admission requirements tab.
If you have not completed Year 12 in the past 10 years or have not completed at least one full year of study at university, you may not be eligible for selection into the course. In that case you should contact us to ascertain your eligibility.
No. Applicants who have completed the optional Supplementary Application Form may be offered a telephone interview. Interviews will be conducted in late December to January.
You will have to attend lectures, tutorials and practical classes for up to 25-30 hours per week depending on the year of study.
Yes, for 12 months. It will not harm your application if you choose to decline an offer then reapply in subsequent years.
This will not be necessary but may be considered if you already have STAT results from previous testing.
First, you should make sure that pharmacy is the profession that you really want to pursue and seek career planning advice. If you have no Year 12 qualification or your ATAR was not high enough, you should consider qualifying for admission to the Bachelor of Clinical Science, Bachelor of Medical Science or another relevant university course with a view to reapplying for pharmacy in the future.
No. All places in this course are Commonwealth supported (other than for international students).
Australian and New Zealand students can only study CSU's Bachelor of Pharmacy as a Commonwealth supported student and will be liable to pay the student contribution (HECS). Financial assistance is available through the various CSU scholarships available. In addition you will need to buy books - most subjects have prescribed textbooks, and often students purchase additional books to help with their studies. Scientific texts typically cost between $100 and $150 each. Second-hand books are often available. There are costs associated with professional placement (travel and living). Some assistance with rural placement is available. Protective clothing (laboratory coat and protective glasses) are also required from the first or second week of the course.
