The UQ Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) degree includes an optional major which is completed in the 4th year of study.

The program allows students to undertake a research project under the guidance of an experienced researcher. Projects may be in any area of research that is currently being conducted within the School of Pharmacy.

Students conduct a review of the literature, learn how to design their experiments, conduct their research, and write up their results in the form of a research paper. Students also present their research plans and findings to academics in the School of Pharmacy. Entry into the major is according to GPA and project availability.

A list of potential projects is announced late in First Semester of the 3rd year of study. Application to the major program is made using an application form made available at the same time.

Students should discuss projects with the supervisors and rank the projects in order of preference on the application form. Applicants will be offered a place according to GPA and project availability.
