The University of Sydney School of Pharmacy, also known as Sydney Pharmacy School is a constituent body of the University of Sydney, Australia. The first Faculty of Pharmacy in Australia, it began teaching in 1899 with cohorts of 'Materia Medica', with the introduction of the Bachelor of Pharmacy degree itself in 1960.[1] The school is one of the smaller at the University, and is positioned with its own building, the sandstone Pharmacy and Bank Building, with associated laboratories and academic staff wings below and around. The structure itself is so named because it was rebuilt on the campus grounds, piece by piece, from the facade of the then Commercial Banking Company previously located in Martin Place, in Sydney's CBD, and donated to the University in 1923.[2]

On 30 April 2018, Sydney Pharmacy School joined the newly combined Faculty of Medicine and Health at the University of Sydney.

At undergraduate level, Pharmacy offers two choices: a four-year Bachelor of Pharmacy coursework degree and a five-year Bachelor of Pharmacy and Management degree (introduced in 2017).

At postgraduate coursework level, Pharmacy offers a graduate-entry Master of Pharmacy coursework degree as well as two Graduate Certificates available to pharmacists, a Graduate Certificate in Pharmacy Practice and a Graduate Certificate in Evidence-Based Complementary Medicines.

There are two postgraduate coursework by research degrees available: the Master of Philosophy (Pharmacy) and Doctor of Philosophy.
