Rangsit University Pharmacy Project

Proposed 2019 program

This collaborative program, delivered by Rangsit University will allow Bachelor of Pharmacy students to spend time in Bangkok, Thailand undertaking research activities with this highly regarded Institution. Interspersed with your research will be site visits to a pharmaceutical company. Research activities and subjects will be determined by your host university, but it may be possible to propose your own research topic.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in cultural activities and tours to help you appreciate the beauty of Thailand and its people.

This program is partially funded by the Australian Government's New Colombo Plan funding. CSU recognises the support of the Australian Government in providing targeted funds which have subsidised the cost of this program to students.

Academic Information: Students may be eligible to receive academic recognition for 8 points in PHM315 or PHM406. Students undertaking the three week program will be eligible to receive 8 points.

OS-HELP is a loan available to eligible Commonwealth Supported students who want to undertake some of their study overseas. OS-HELP can be used for a range of expenses such as airfares, accommodation, and other travel or study expenses.

Eligibility for OS-HELP will be assessed once successful students are selected and is based on a number of criteria.  Acceptance into a CSU Global program does not guarantee eligibility for the loan. Please note, you cannot pay your program deposit through OS-HELP.

All funding associated with CSU Global programs (travel grants, scholarships, subsidies and loans) is linked to successful completion of academic and program expectations. Failure to meet these requirements may result in funding being revoked.
