Dean’s Statement

The pharmacy programme from its inception was a 5-year programme. This has enabled students to be well-grounded in both scientific and professional aspects of pharmacy. It is worth noting that the Pharmacists Council of Nigeria has ordered all the schools/faculties of pharmacy in Nigeria Universities to adopt a 5-year undergraduate programme. As directed by the Pharmacists Council of Nigeria and approved by the Senate of the University, the Faculty now runs a declassified degree programme with effect from 1988/89 session. The pass mark is 50 % with the exception of dispensing and forensic pharmacy where the pass mark is 60 %. A student who scores 70 % and above will be awarded distinction in that subject provided that he/she passes all the subjects of that examination at the first sitting. The first batch of 84 students graduating under the declassified programme passed out in the 1991/92 academic year.
