The Academic Program offered by the Faculty of Pharmacy leads to the Pharmacy degree with a Pharm. D. title. This program extends over a period of five years (10 semesters). It begins with an introduction to the basic sciences providing a basis for further pharmaceutical studies. In the second part of the program, students take part in general and special pharmaceutical education at the university departments, teaching pharmacies, institutes, laboratories and pharmaceutical works.
The diploma program consists of five years of basic and special studies. The first two years are devoted to the basic sciences. The 3rd and 4th years specifically concentrate on the special pharmaceutical sciences. After the 2nd, 3rd and 4th years, students take part in practical training on three occasions, in public pharmacies or at a pharmaceutical company in Hungary or in their countries. In the 9th semester students must submit a written Thesis, and in the 10th semester they are engaged for 4 months in a practical training program in public and hospital pharmacies. After the practical training period, students take examinations in the presence of the State Board, where they have to prove their skills in pharmaceutical sciences (both practical and theoretical).
The Pharmacy diploma entitles the bearer to work in public and hospital pharmacies, laboratories, pharmaceutical works, pharmaceutical research institutes, international commercial trade of pharmaceuticals, and management of pharmaceutical materials.
