Articulation Links in Pharmacy With UniSA Benefit Taylor's Students with an Eye on Studying Abroad

The School of Pharmacy (SOP) has an international articulation agreement with School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences at the University of South Australia (UniSA). This agreement offers Taylor's University students the opportunity (after Year 2) to complete their Bachelor studies in pharmacy at UniSA if they wish to gain an Australian qualification.

Recently, Dr. Libby Hotham, Programme Director for the Bachelor of Pharmacy at UniSA, and Mr. Juan Ospino, Coordinator for International Recruiting at UniSA visited the School of Pharmacy at Taylor's University. Dr. Libby Hotham teaches in every year of the programme at UniSA, and she has a special interest and research focus on substance use. Her specific research interests include substance use by pregnant women (currently aligned with the World Health Organisation (WHO) Centre at the University of Adelaide), harm minimization initiatives and complementary medicine provision within the community pharmacy sector, and the use of psychostimulants in children and adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Dr. Libby delivered a two-hour lecture on health promotion and public health issues to first-year pharmacy students at the School of Pharmacy, Taylor’s University. This was followed by a briefing session on the TU-UniSA articulation programme opportunities by Mr. Juan Ospino.

The School of Pharmacy also offers a range of short-term mobility options to ASEAN destinations and 17 SOP students recently spent time in Thailand. To find out more about study options in the School of Pharmacy
