The University of Tasmania's Discipline of Pharmacy is offering two scholarships in 2020 to encourage Pharmacy students to undertake an individual Honours project during the third and fourth years of the Bachelor of Pharmacy with Applied Honours degree. While all students in the Bachelor of Pharmacy with Applied Honours will participate in group-based clinical research projects, an individual research-focussed Honours program is also available as an optional overload for students who wish to pursue a PhD. An individual Honours project with a significant thesis component is required for entry into a PhD program. There are increasing opportunities for Pharmacy graduates to undertake research in the discipline and considerable demand for graduates with the advanced skills which Honours study develops. The Division itself offers a range of interesting projects, ranging from laboratory sciences to clinical studies, for students to investigate as part of their Honours research.
Available to students enrolling in third year of the Bachelor of Pharmacy with Honours (54B) in Semester 1, 2020 who are interested in undertaking the Honours program. Applicants will need to be accepted by the Division into the 54B Honours program to be eligible for the scholarship. This award may not be held with another scholarship.
To retain this award from semester to semester, recipients are required to achieve a minimum CREDIT result in all units studied each semester.
