Pharmacy second year

Just wanted to gain some knowledge from a previous pharmacy student on what second year is like? What you get to do, any assignments, placements and what workshops are like?

Also I've noticed that for 2018 it only shows three papers and the credit numbers are different. What does this mean and do we have to pick more papers?

Hi mrtumnus,

At Otago, students typically take 126 points in one academic year. The three papers in the second year should sum to approximately 126 points. This means that one paper has more workload than what you are normally used to (18-points). I believe we have some (not a lot) information on the course here. However, it is probably outdated and I cannot located it right now.

Sam will be able to guide you on this matter better than I can.
