Pharmacy is the science that deals with medicinal agents and drugs. The curriculum of the state examination program is defined in the nationwide regulations on medical registration for pharmacists. It conveys knowledge related to medicinal drugs and the skills the trained pharmacist needs to conduct scientific research, to critically evaluate findings, and to work responsibly with pharmaceuticals. Graduates practice their profession at public pharmacies, in hospitals, in the pharmaceutical industry, at universities, and in administration. They are engaged in the development, production, and analysis of medicinal drugs as well as in dispensing them and providing information on their effects and side effects. The standard period of study is eight semesters. It is followed by a one-year internship.

Please note:
In the summer semester 2021 and in the winter semester 2021/22 there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
