The Academic Programme offered by the School of Pharmacy leads to the degree of Pharm.D. This programme extends over a period of five years. It begins with an introduction to the basic sciences providing a basis for further pharmaceutical studies. In the second part of the programme, students take part in general and special pharmaceutical education at the university departments, teaching pharmacies, institutes, laboratories and pharmaceutical works.
The diploma programme consists of five years of basic and special studies. The first two years are devoted to the basic sciences. The 3rd, 4th and 5th years specifically concentrate on the special pharmaceutical sciences. After the 2nd, and the 3rd years, students take part in practical training in public pharmacies or at a pharmaceutical company in Hungary or in their home countries. In the 9th semester students must submit a written Thesis, and in the 10th semester they are engaged for 6 months in a practical training program in public and hospital pharmacies.
