Pharmacy students have ranked James Cook University’s (JCU) pharmacy course the best in Australia.
Nearly 93% of students are satisfied with the overall quality of the education at JCU, according to the latest Good Universities Guide.
JCU, in Queensland, also topped the list for student support and learning engagement.
However, it appears a quality education doesn’t translate into more lucrative entry-level jobs.
The median graduate salary for JCU graduates is $40,000, compared with $45,000 for University of South Australia graduates.
University of Tasmania graduates had the most success finding full time employment with all students in a full-time job within four months of completing their course.
Top 10 pharmacy courses ranked by overall student experience:
- James Cook University
- Curtin University
- University of Queensland
- Queensland University of Technology
- University of New England
- University of Newcastle
- RMIT University
- Griffith University
- University of South Australia
- University of Tasmania.
