"Deciding to study for a Bachelor of Pharmacy at Waipapa Taumata Rau was a straight forward decision for me for a couple of reasons: I have existing connections in Auckland, and I thought the programme was very well structured.

“There are so many different avenues that Pharmacy can lead you; Pharmacy is much more than working in a dispensary. It is an ever-changing field encompassing many areas, such as community pharmacies, hospital, and industry.

Whilst studying, I’ve found the environment really supportive, and I’ve had many opportunities made available to me by the University. The Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) programme was really valuable because it equipped me with the necessary research skills needed for completing a PhD.

"I have formed strong friendships with many of my classmates, which will extend beyond university, and have built a great network with staff I can contact for support and guidance beyond university.

“I encourage anyone interested in medications and helping people to consider studying for a Bachelor of Pharmacy. Not only is the degree highly rewarding, but you’ll also have a great job and financial security once you’ve graduated.“
