National admission restriction


In line with the Regulations on Medical Registration for Dispensing Chemists (AappO), this university programme lasts four years (two course sections of 4 semesters each), followed by a year of practical training (standard length of the programme 8 semesters). The first programme section, which, like the second, includes numerous practicals and laboratory courses, provides students with knowledge of general, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, mathematics, physics, pharmaceutical biology, chemistry and analysis. These subjects are supplemented by classes in medical and pharmaceutical terminology, study of forms of medication and history of the natural sciences. Then the first part of the Pharmaceutical Examination is taken. An eight-week clinical traineeship gives students an insight into pharmaceutical practice. The second section of the programme serves to increase knowledge in various areas of pharmacy (pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmaceutical biology, study of forms of medication, pharmacology, clinical pharmacy and toxicology) and provide knowledge of specialist disciplines (including anatomy, human physiology and pathophysiology, pathology, nutrition studies). This is followed by the second part of the Pharmaceutical Examination. The third part of the Pharmaceutical Examination is taken after the one-year practical training and covers pharmaceutical practice and special fields of law for dispensing chemists. After passing this examination, students can apply for licensing. After passing the second part of the Pharmaceutical Examination, students can gain the academic degree of “Diplom-Pharmazeut“. It is granted after the successful defence of a diploma dissertation.
