Keiran Batavia (Bachelor of Pharmacy) (Hons)
Curtin is the perfect place to study pharmacy. I’ve had extensive training in compounding labs and sterile compounding, learning how to make and manufacture medications, IV bag infusions, ampoules and eye drops. We undertake clinical placements at community pharmacies and hospitals, which fully prepares us for the workplace when we graduate.

Meg Abercromby – Bachelor of Science (Health Promotion) and Bachelor of Science (Public Health) (Honours)
The best part about the course is how practical the teaching methods are. There is very minimal time spent in lectures – most time is spent focusing on case scenarios and clinical skills sessions. This allows for a very personalised approach as the tutors will happily address any specific concerns you have.
