Study Pharmacy in Italy

Study Pharmacy in Italy

The MSc Pharmacy programmes (Undergraduate Entry) in both U. Bologna and U. Tor Vergata are still taking applications, through Round 1 (closes shortly) and Round 2 (closes September) application routes. U. Bologna is the oldest university in the world. The Tor Vergata programme has links with the one offered at
U. Nottingham.

As with most programmes in Europe, your Leaving Certificate points are completely irrelevant, though you will need to do an entrance test. The test is largely in Biology and Chemistry with a handful of questions in each of Mathematics, Physics and Logical Thinking.

Fees are low: set with reference to your family income and, in Bologna, you can pay between zero and 3060 pa.

The academic year in Italy starts in md-October, giving you plenty of time to see how CAO works out, though increasing numbers of Irish students are seeing Italy as their preferred destination for studying Medicine, Dentistry or Pharmacy.

Masters: Surge in Irish Applicants to Dutch Master's Degrees
Written on Thursday, 01 April 2021 17:38

Surge in Numbers of Irish Students Applying to join Master's Degrees in the Netherlands

In these interesting times, new graduates are meeting challenges in securing employment on graduation. Many are looking to do Master’s programmes, as they wait for the situation to improve. Unfortunately, many can’t afford the tuition fees in Ireland. There is a solution:

There are now nearly 500 Irish students studying on English-taught Master's degree programmes in Dutch research universities. This number is expected to increase significantly this year.


- excellent universities, offering English-taught programmes
- admission requirements  that, in many cases, are not based on grades
- low fees (including generous student finance) Through a government covid-measure,  fees for 2021/22 are reduced to Eur 1084 pa!!
- enhanced opportunities to enter globalised employment markets

Find out more about these opportunities in our forthcoming event OMG Im Doing a Dutch Masters, where you can meet some of the leading universities and, most importantly, some ofthe Irish students who are studying there already.

Yes, you can still be a Doctor or a Vet!

Register for our webinar here

At EUNICAS, we are often struck by how early in their school lives some students have ruled themselves out of careers in the health sciences. Ill never get those sort of points they say, scowling sadly at a far-off golden mountain. However, it is clear that we are beginning to understand that high points don't necessary predict successful medical careers. Often students with points in the low 400s, who have then studied in Europe, have become superb doctors, vets or dentists. We are also starting to meet students saying that even if they get into UCC/UCD, theyd prefer to go to Italy!

Whether you are in 5th or 6th year, or even TY, and want to reignite your dream, or learn how anything is possible, if you it want enough, you should come to this online event on the evening of Tuesday 30th March. Find out what programmes are available, discover admissions systems that arent interested in your Leaving Cert points, explore the quality of these med schools and, most importantly, meet Irish students already studying abroad.
