Introduction

A Master of Pharmacy research degree enables a candidate to undertake a program of research and advanced study in a specialist field. The research takes place over 2 years of study or equivalent part-time and normally results in a thesis or equivalent of traditionally circa 50-60,000 words (depending on the discipline), written in English.

A Masters degree in pharmacy area could be within a range of disciplines, for example: pharmaceutics and pharmaceutical sciences, experimental or clinical pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, drug analysis, clinical pharmacy and pharmacy practice.

The research topic will reflect the candidates' own interests and the research expertise of their supervisors. Further information on the research areas of supervisors in these disciplines is available from the Web Access Research Portal (WARP) site.

The campus of study will vary depending on the location of the candidate, the supervisor and the research field.

All candidates for a Masters degree are also required to enrol concurrently in two units in the Graduate Certificate of Research.

Currently there are no fees for domestic candidates as they are provided with a Commonwealth Research Training Scheme place. Fees for international candidates are here.

To apply, see Graduate Research: http://www.utas.edu.au/research/graduate-research/future-candidates/how-to-apply for application information.
