For those considering Pharmacy as an alternative career to medicine/dentistry, this is the page that'll list all UNDERGRADUATE accredited courses that'll allow you to practice as a Pharmacist in a very digestible table much like Med schools Selection Criteria Y12s & Non-standards AND UPDATED Dentistry Schools Selection Criteria Y12s & Non-standards. (Link: Accredited Pharmacist Programs - AHPRA & National Boards).

If there is anything missing/incorrect about the following table, please let me know! :yay: (Also there's nothing on non-standard entry well because... there's simply nothing online to go off)
