Development, preparation and delivery of all kinds of drugs used in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases; informing patients accurately about drug use and drug-related problems; analysis of the drug, surveillance of its safety, efficacy and cost; the health service that carries out activities related to standardization and quality assurance related to drugs is called “Pharmacy”. A healthcare professional who graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy and is authorized to carry out pharmacy activities is called a “Pharmacist”. The Faculty of Pharmacy is a 5-year undergraduate program covering theoretical and practical courses. Practical courses, which form the basis of pharmacy education, take place in the laboratories of the faculty of pharmacy. In addition, students have the opportunity to do internships in hospitals, pharmacies and pharmaceutical factories due to the compulsory internship they have to complete during their education.

Pharmacy Curriculum

In the practical and supportive learning environment the program provides, a team of internationally experienced lecturers and professors encourage students to explore their individual talents and build their own professional path. The first two years include courses from basic sciences. In the following years, they continue with advanced engineering courses such as manufacturing technology, production system and operations research. In addition to the above subjects, subjects such as engineering design, communication, teamwork and project work are integrated into the curriculum throughout its four years.
The current curriculum of the Pharmacy Graduate Program Curriculum is in Appendix-1.

Course assessment usually comprises of a comprehensive final exam and continuous assessment. Continuous assessment can include amongst others, mid-terms, projects, and class participation. Letter grades are calculated based on the weight of the final exam and the continuous assessment and the actual numerical marks obtained in these two assessment components. Based on the course grades the student’s semester grade point average (GPA) and cumulative point average (CPA) are calculated.


The student must complete 240 ECTS and all programme requirements. A minimum cumulative grade point average (CPA) of 2.0 is required for graduation. Thus, although ‘C-‘, ‘D+’ and ‘D‘ are pass grades (conditionally pass), in order to achieve a CPA of 2.0, an average grade of ‘C’ is required. In addition, it is required to complete compulsory internship in a specified duration and quality.

What makes us different

Pharmaceutical training is multidisciplinary and mainly consists of medicine, chemistry, life and medical sciences. Since atleast half of pharmaceutical training is carried out in laboratories, ever since the establishment of our faculty, all of our laboratory practices (Analytic chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceutical microbiology, pharmaceutical Botanics, Pharmacognosis, Pharmaceutical Technology) have been, without delay, are being carried out, with most of our classes including Anatomy and Clinical Pharmaceutics classes, in laboratories and clinical practices. By carrying out experiments in these labs, our students get the opportunities to use many equipments and devices in areas of developing medicinal analysis, medicinal active substance synthesis, new formulas, nanotechnological medicine and they get to be prepared for the whole field of the medicine industry and pharmaceutics.
