Pharmacy Admissions: For M.Pharm & B Pharm courses in India

Pharmacy Courses

Pharmacy is a promising course for those who seek alternatives to medicine. It comprises of subjects mostly related to medicine.

However there are some differences as the course orients towards proper drug procurement methodology, proper delivery into the affected site in the body and also enhancement of drug's safety and efficiency.

The course can be perceived at the basic level of Diploma in pharmacy (2yrs)

B. Pharm course at graduation level (4yrs)

Pharm.D course at graduation level for 6yrs.

M.Pharm course at post graduation level.

PhD in pharmacy as doctoral level degree.

For any of the above courses there are required entrance exams to be qualified but you can still perceive them with minimum eligibility grades and required funds to pay the fee if you can afford for.

B Pharmacy admission & courses

B. Pharm course as mentioned earlier is a 4 yr graduation level course which can be perceived directly after 10+2 i.e PUC or intermediate education. The minimum require grades are 50 to 60% in 10+2.

Different states have their own entrance exam or interview meant for admission into Engg. and medicine courses after 10+2 which are also meant to fill up B.Pharm seats.

The courses is offered in many colleges both Government institutes and Private educational institutes. The fee structure is low in govt institutes while it is expensive in private institutes. Look out for institutes with good and sufficient faculty and facilities including placement service.

The course covers subjects like Human anatomy & Physiology, Drug oriented inorganic and organic chemistry, Bio-chemistry, Microbiology, Pharmacognosy (natural drugs), Pharmacology, Medicinal chemistry, Pharmaceutical engineering, Marketing, Physical pharmaceutics, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Pharmacy-Jurisprudence, Pharmaceutics etc.

For a list of career or job options after Graduation (B Pharm) and post-graduation (M Pharm) in pharmacy see the page linked beside.

M Pharmacy courses

M. Pharm course is of 2yrs duration. It is offered for B.Pharm graduates with at least 50% grades in the score at graduation.

The course is demanding and highly competitive or demanding. So it is expensive and also less offered by institutes in comparison to B.Pharm courses. So getting an M.Pharm admission with less fee and also scholarships is desirable. In India this course is offered by some top most Universities and institutes. Besides you can avail MHRD scholarship of Rs. 8000/- if you qualify GPAT entrance exam conducted by MS University, Baroda.

The courses offered at M.Pharm level are aimed towards specialization in particular pharma sector like Pharmaceutics, Pharmacology, Pharmacognosy, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical analysis, Pharma-Quality assurance (QA), Pharmaco-informatics, Pharma toxicology, Pharma-MBA, Clinical pharmacy, Pharm D (3yrs) etc.

Recommendations for M Pharm admission

The best option to perceive M Pharm course is through GPAT qualification to get Scholarship and also eligibility to apply for universities and institutes which offer M Pharm course at nominal prices. The institutes which offer M Pharm admission at nominal price (below Rs.1 lakh per entire course) in India with all India students eligible to apply are.

1. Banaras Hindu University.

2. National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and research (NIPER). with campuses at Mohali, Hyderabad, kolkata, Ahmedabad, hajipur.

3. MS University Baroda.

4. Dr. Harisingh Gour University Sagar, Sagar University-Sagar.

5. Punjab University (PU)- Chandigarh.

6.Guru Ghhasidas Hindu vishwa vidhyalaya. (Rs. 50,000/ semester)

7. Jamia Hamdard (pharmacy department)

8. BITS at Pilani & Ranchi campuses. Has become expensive presently (above Rs-2.5 lakhs per course).

9. L. M. College of Pharmacy, Ahmedabad

10. Debrughar University.

11. Bombay college of pharmacy

12. DIPSAR, New Delhi

13. M.D University Rohtak.

14. Bharati Vidyapeeth University.

The conditions are very favorable now to get free seat or inexpensive seat due to influx of many NIPER branches.

If you wish to spend money for your admission then there are lot of options and list of few well renowned institutes are

1. Manipal academy- Manipal

2. Nirma college of pharmacy-Gujarat

3. JSS college of Pharmacy-Mysore & Ooty. (Mysore branch best for Clinical Pharmacy)

4. Geetham a deemed university-Guntur.

5. Bharati Vidyapeeth deemed university-Pune.

And for state wise colleges to get your M Pharm admission in nominal rates its advisable to appear for PG CET exams conducted in different states.

These private institutes provide good education and even may make provisions for you to receive MHRD scholarships from GPAT qualification. This can help you a bit financially but enquire about the provision availability there before you join the institutes.Check out for a list of Recognized M.Pharm offering colleges in India.

You may also need to enquire about the specialization branches offered there and also provisions for industrial exposure by means of project during the education. The institute can be more preferable if they are chances of placement offers after the course completion.

Pharma admissions abroad

Many B Pharm graduates have an inclination to perceive their M.Pharm or Masters program in abroad preferably in USA and Europe. For this they are required to clear exams like GRE, TOEFEL etc.

There are guys who did well in GRE to get an admission with full covered fellowship for both fee and stay there. This can be exiting if you are one of them. But chances have become tough due to heavy competition and also recession.

Some of them may be required to avail Bank educational loans for perceiving their course in abroad. So they try to pay of their loans by working there. Any how it may be worth the exposure if they can make into good careers there..

But after long observation of these students who went in the past, it appears that many don't complete their course in time and try to spend time in earning a few dollars a day with an intention to make good value in return in their natives based on currency conversion factor.

SO don't get yourself stuck there by not completing the course and not getting a good job there.

Thanks and all the best for your admission into pharmacy courses.........

HI Sir,

This is Pranav. I got 8616 rank in GPAT 2011.

May I know how can we get into a college in other state through GPAT (2011)?


bheem profile image

bheem 5 years ago Author

hi pranav! congrats on ur GPAT qualification...

GPAT is meant to provide scholarships and also a mere qualification for assisting top institutes filter the worthy candidates.

In central institutes GPAT to some extent is used for direct counselling to offer seats.

In state wise, local candidates r gvn preferance to non-locals, still u can try to appear in their state level PG entrance tests conducted by respective state universities.

For example PG cet in karnataka. There if u get a good rank u may avail a better M.pharm seat at reasonable fee compared to management quota seats..

all the best......


pranav vemula 5 years ago

Thank you sir for your reply..

How should we apply to centralize councelling for GPAT?


bheem profile image

bheem 5 years ago Author

Hi Pranav, i think there is no centralized counselling for GPAT. Only individual counselling by respective institutes..


Anamika Bhagat 4 years ago

can you please give the names of all government m pharma colleges in india?


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

@ Anamika: It will be a quite big list. Because government colleges offering pharma courses are present at both individual state government and also some central govt regulated institutes.

The difference is, in state govt colleges, preference to local candidates is very higher than to outside state candidates. While in central institutes this problem is minimal.

The list of colleges mentioned above take students from all over the country and some even take international students.

So with this preferences in mind you may search for government colleges of your state. If you think you want to go through GPAT qualification you may also opt for central institutes.

For a brief idea of all govt colleges offering M. Pharma course, I would suggest you to visit, AICTE website for the list of approved colleges.

But as matter of fact the government colleges offering M. Pharm course will be very meager in comparison to engineering colleges in your region.

Hope this helps..


Anamika Bhagat 4 years ago

Thank you sir. Can you please tell me that am I eligible to receive the stipend If I crack the GPAT exam and take admission in a private college approved by AICTE?


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

@ Anamika: Ya you are eligible to receive the monthly stipend if you qualify GPAT exam and take admission to M.Pharm course in any AICTE approved institutes.

But also enquire if the college you wish to take admission for M.Pharm can help you receive your fellowship from the concerned university for which it is affiliated.

Because though the fellowship is given by MHRD, it is regulated by UGC. Your concerned university gets the fellowship from MHRD and then it disburses to the eligible candidates in respective colleges.

Sometimes the colleges retain the fellowship for themselves and in turn offer you an option for low fee than stipulated, or else they may provide the fellowship at the end of the year or course tenure.

So enquire if the private college is able to help you in receiving the fellowship.

all the best.....

Hey I found ur article useful. Thanks for putting it up.

I want to join Pharmacy Uni in India like in one and half year but I live in East Africa. So do I have to do an entrance test?

And I'm not quite sure but I want my work to be of like making medicines, researching on them etc so do I have to do B Pharm and then M Pharm or something else?

Also I've been checking out unis in India and came across Nirma and Manipaal. Do you suggest one to go to a govt Uni or a private one? What's the difference and by how much do you think will the fees be differing?


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

@Nishma! In India there are no Universities for Pharma course alone. There are few govt and private unis with pharma course as one of their department besides other medical courses.

To perceive Pharma course you need to start from B.Pharm then M.pharm and so on.

The major difference between govt n private unis is that in private unis quality of education is better and also you will find many non indians studying there with better accommodation facilities than that in govt unis.

The fee for private and govt unis differs greatly especially for foreigners. You may perceive your one year course for 500 to 1000 US-dollars at max in govt unis while this may be 3 to 4 times more in private unis.

Regarding entrance, there are some seats reserved for international students in govt unis which require no entrance test to clear but, just mere possession of required qualification equivalent to Indian courses eligible for the courses.

Hope this helps....

bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

@Amit! In most cases you might need to give an entrance exam. But it also depends on your state rules. Sometimes you can easily avail seat if you have a proper merit in your 12th...... Check out the rules regarding this in your state..


Sailaja 4 years ago

Hi,

I have done my Diploma in pharmacy.I am planning to do M Pharmacy directly with out B Pharmacy.Is there any possibility to do like this.I have around 3 years of practical experience as a pharmacist.


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

Hi Sailaja! There is no way for you to do M.Pharm directly without B.Pharm in India as far as i Know based on AICTE and PCI rules..

One more reason is M.Pharm is a specialization and research oriented into particular branch like cology, chemistry, cognosy etc.

Though you learn these subjects in diploma the amount of subject is very meager but in b.pharm the same subjects are taught in vast detail.....

Your experience of 3 yrs as a pharmacist will not add benefit as eligibility to the course....

Regards..

Hi siva! pharma MBA is offered exclusively by NIPER, Manipal,Jamia hamdard, Punjab university,Indian Institute Of Pharmaceutical Marketing, Lucknow etc. You just need a B.Pharm graduation...


kader 4 years ago

sir, i finished 12 th i would like todo diploma in pharmacy.but what is the use of that.should i get a lisence to own pharmacy?


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

Kader! diploma in pharmacy is mostly perceived with an interest to establish a medical shop i.e a pharmacy. Many owners of pharmacy stores in India still don't own their own diploma but heir a certificate for the purpose from other certified candidates. But the govt is thinking of bringing a strict rule in this regard that a pharmacy certificate holder should be strictly present in the premises. So if you don't want to study the course still you can put a pharmacy by hiring a pharmacy certificated candidate.

Secondly D.pharmacy candidates are given posts like hospital pharmacists in most hospitals, govt institutes like army, railways etc....

But presently there is a tough competition due to desire of B.Pharm candidates to enter into the same posts..

Hope this helps.


Nikitha 4 years ago

Sir,

I want to know dat what is d scope of Pharm D coarse in India.....and my Gpat score card is valid for Pharm D coarse or not.................Sir many collleges are conducting there own exams like sagar university,jamia hamdard etc.....sir I want to know dat if I not appear to these exams and qualifies GPAT then what r my chances to get admission to these colleges or I have to give their specific exams???


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

Hello Nikitha! pharm D course was introduced in India by effort by the PCI president to see that pharmacy graduates can have even better opportunities in career. I personally don't see too much of scope in it presently..I don't think GPAT score is valid for pharm-D (i.e 6yrs graduation or for pg of 3 yrs) but individual institute rules may vary. Giving exams is mostly mandatory for the admission.


Nikitha 4 years ago

Sir,

I have one more quiery dat Pharm D corse is MS+PhD or M.Pharm+PhD??

For doing M.Pharm which branch or subject is the best??


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

Nikitha! pharm-D course is neither of MS+PhD or M.Pharm+PhD. Pharm-D is a new course for graduation of 6 years or as post-graduation after B.Pharm for 3yrs. M.Pharm you select a subject as per your interest. But prioritize to do from a good institute with some industrial training during your second year of M.pharm.

All the best.....


Rahul 4 years ago

Sir, I want to know dat if I vil do Pharm D (post baccurelate) 3 yrs coarse after my B.Pharm then would i vil be able to apply for the vacancies that need M.Pharm candidates???


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

Rahul! Pharm-D is a different set of course intended especially for hospital care. I don't think you will have options to apply for M.Pharm based jobs like in industry after Pharm-D. But you can try in academics for related subjects..

Hope this helps.......

sir,

i have been currently pursuing graduation under pharmacy. I am a bit confused weather i should go for m.pharm or mba as there is a tough competition.and what is the exact criteriaon for mba from a good institute,is there any specific entrance exam.


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

Faraz!

You may perceive M.Pharm or MBA as per your plans. And as you mentioned there is tough competition for both the fields.The criteria to get into premier institutes is to appear CAT,GMAT or their institution based entrances. For MBA pharma in NIPER you need to have GPAT qualification and also clear their entrance exam with a good merit.

bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

Yash rajwar! I dont think niper offers pharm-d course in its list of PG courses. So it may not be possible to join Pharm-d in Niper as the course is not there. Any how they have a branch called hospital or clinical pharmacy. So you can try to do it if you clear niper entrance.

Hope this helps.....

Sir,

I want to know fee details for M-Pharma under any college of P.T.U.


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

Prakash! One will not get scholarship if he qualifies GPAT. One can get it only if he/she gets admission into M.Pahrm course based on his/her GPAT qualification. So you will not get scholarship if you qualified GPAt after M.Pharm first year unless you take a fresh M.Pharm admission on GPAT basis.

bheem 4 years ago Author

Ruchika! I am not aware of the fee structure in P.T.U. Try to enquire any pharma colleges offering M.Phram to students admitted through PTU counselling.

Hi Sir,

I scored a rank of 110 in GPAT'2012. In which top colleges can I get admission for the same?


bheem profile image

bheem 4 years ago Author

Swapnadeep, Congrats for you rank.. The chances of getting admission for a rank above 50 can't be ascertained exactly as the trends and thoughts of students change every-time. Many fancy NIPER seat. But even some fancy BHU, Bits, Sagar, PU etc. For NIPER you will require to qualify their exam. You may apply for BHU, Bits, Sagar, PU etc. But now BHU has got IIT status so can't assure seat for your rank while previously the same rank got admitted in BHU. So apply for more than 3 options including NIPER and try for admission. One thing is sure you will get admission with your rank in a Top institute.

bheem 4 years ago Author

Prashanth! Bits is one of the good campuses for M.Pharm, you will get fellowships perhaps in turns of 6 months once, but enquire once. The main difference between NIPER and Bits is the fees or cost of the course. In NIPER it is cheaper than BITS.

Chirag! with 225 rank you may apply to all the institutes mentioned in the article. Only variance is the fee structure, fellowship timing, specification of M.Pharm and regional distance from your native place. There are also govt pharma colleges in some states which offer seat for local candidates preferably through GPAT. Check for some in your state..

sir i have done M.Pharmacy in pharmaceutics. i want to go canada by student visa , wich course is suitable for me and which course i will able to take. and if there is another way to settle in canada. pls suggest me the best way how i can settle in canada.

and i also want information how we can became the registered pharmacist in canada??????


bheem profile image

bheem 3 years ago Author

Hi dinesh, the suggestion from a friend who recently went for higher education in Canada is as below.

For above question I think aim of the student is to settle in Canada, best option is to go for PHD in any discipline related to pharmacy, life sciences or medicine. this will ensure 2 yrs of education experience in canada and also he'll qualify for Experience class immigration permit for Permanent residence (with excellent growth opportunities) . The is special provision for students pursuing PHD, pls refer (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/app...

Other than that its quite difficult to practice pharmacy in north america if you masters degree is from other country, you'll be required to clear province pharmacy exam (every province has different rules). So you have to clear exam of one particular province say Ontario which will take minimum 1 yr of preparation and if you clear the exam then you will need to get relevant work experience in Canada for another 2 to 3 yrs before you can practice in a pharmacy, again it is not certain that you will get a licence because they will again do degree equivalence and you never know how laws will change 5 yrs from now. So i think its better to go for directly phd.

but there is one more option through which you can immigrate to Canada if you have relevant english proficiency and work experience, most of people in punjab go through this route pls see (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/app... though you will be able to settle in canada quick, but you wont get Canadian education and your future growth will be limited due to foreign degree... nevertheless even if u r earning minimum wage of $ 10.25 per hour, which is way more than what you will earn in India even if you become a professor. So this should be your last option if others fail. And once you are in canada you can always get management degree for better prospects.

Hi Tanya! Top B pharm colleges are among those which offer M. Pharm mentioned above like BHU, manipal, BITS, etc...

Maths is not required to do diploma in pharmacy.

Hi sir,

I m in XIth and my subjects are physics,chemistry,biology,english and psychology.I am afraid that maths is required to get admission in pharmacy colleges.Is it true? If so, will it be okay if I study Biotech instead of maths as an optional subject? Do they give you admissions with biotech?


bheem profile image

bheem 3 years ago Author

Tanya! if you do-not have maths in XII still you can get admission for B.Pharm. But in your first year of B Pharm you will have maths as one of the subject to clear. If you clear it then you have no problem in remaining years. Further clearing maths is not strict in some colleges while some colleges keep it strict.

PAVAN VENKATESH 2 years ago

Dear sir,

I have qualified GPAT with 1200 rank and I have taken NIPER, BITS, MANIPAL entrance exams this year. Sir my seniors, lecturers and guiding me to take MANIPAL or BITS as placements are better than NIPERs other than Mohali campus...

they told that the mentor NIPER institutes (kolkata, raibareli, hajipur etc.. ) are not upto the mark in case of placements....

Is that ok if I take MANIPAL which is present in my state itself...

sir, please get me an idea regarding this whether placements are good in MANIPAL or not.

IS Manipal a good ,reputed college as NIPER, BITS, BHU etc...?


bheem profile image

bheem 2 years ago Author

swati ! In bhu it might be tough with 23 in merit list. But still face interview as there will be an exam or just direct allotment based on GPAT score. If there is a written test and you perform well than others, you might be selected. All the best.
