Pharmaceutical Analysis involves the use of various analytical techniques to analyse drugs and pharmaceutical products. The programme incorporates three key areas in pharmaceutical analysis: separation methods, analytical techniques and quality assurance. At the end of the programme, students are expected to master various techniques used in analysing drugs and pharmaceutical products. Students will also be exposed to diverse research areas in pharmaceutical analysis.
This program aims to produce the required expertise in the field of pharmaceutical analysis in line with the development of the pharmaceutical and herbal industries in the country and overseas. The course structure is designed so as to provide graduates with specialised knowledge and hands-on experience in the area of pharmaceutical analysis and research.
Our educational facilities are located at the UKM Jalan Raja Muda Campus in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Throughout the four-year journey with us, you will learn in our world-class laboratories, mock manufacturing plant, active learning & clinical pharmacy simulation suites, on-campus community pharmacy and modern teaching hospital (Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz).
The city campus also locates other health-related faculties i.e. Faculty of Health Sciences and Faculty of Dentistry. The campus provides a good platform for you to get to know students from other health-related programmes which may end up as life-long friendships.
Other than the usual on-campus facilities such as the library and cafés, the city campus offers a great diversity with easy access to many interesting spots such as places to eat and drink, shopping malls, recreational parks, theatre halls, and art galleries.
Although on-campus student accommodation is currently not an option for postgraduate students, you may uncover private off-campus accommodation prior to your arrival with a guide from the Faculty of Pharmacy Postgraduate Student Society.
