Events for Prospective Students
Our fall and spring open houses help you learn more about pharmacy as a career and how to be more competitive in the admissions process. Each session will last approximately 90 minutes, with a 45 minute presentation followed by a 45 minute question-and-answer period. You will:
- learn about the outstanding career opportunities in the pharmacy profession, ranging from innovative practice settings to cutting-edge research laboratories,
- get information on the professional and educational requirements for success,
- learn about our admissions process and suggestions on preparing a comprehensive application, and
- hear perspectives from our dynamic faculty and students.
On select Friday afternoons, we host Pharmacy Friday at our Chapel Hill campus. Pharmacy Friday offers an opportunity for prospective students to tour the School, learn about our programs, and the admissions process and interact with current students.
