Program Description

The aim of the Program is to prepare students scientifically and professionally as perfectly competent in the science of drugs and bioactive compounds, for employment in the private sector, i.e. pharmacies, hospitals, clinics, health care centers, the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry, and in the public sector, such as hospitals, ministries and health care services.

The curriculum provides the academic background to fulfill the obligations of a drug specialist in a highly diversified, developed and demanding social environment.

The Program of Study aims to provide Cyprus and the surrounding region with scientists who will be specialists in various areas of pharmacy.

More specifically, scientists will be specialised in the development and control of drugs and will be able to successfully work in the pharmaceutical industry. Our aim is not only to enable them to respond as specialists in the area of pharmacy but also to be capable to provide the public with responsible, scientific and accurate advice on drug use and safety, on drug-drug and drug-food interaction and advice on narcotics and poisons.

Moreover graduates of this Program will be specialists in areas of drug design, development, production and control, as well as of cosmetics. Furthermore they will be specialised in the development and use of the local pharmaceutical flora and its agricultural, commercial and scientific exploitation.
