BPharm(Hons)

Ms Kim made this Official Information request to University of Auckland

Currently waiting for a response from University of Auckland, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Ms Kim

Dear University of Auckland,

On the University of Auckland website (here: https://www.auckland.ac.nz/en/study/stud...) under entry requirements, it lists that "Entry into the BPharm(Hons) is very competitive; only 10 students per year will be accepted into the programme." This limit of 10 students into the BPharm(Hons) program is also stated in the University of Auckland programme limitations (Limitations Schedule A).

However, looking at the University of Auckland graduation database, it is clear that the number of students who graduate with a Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) [BPharm(Hons)] exceeds the 10 students limit.

For instance, in 2020, according to the graduate database, all 85 students who graduated with a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree, was awarded a class of honours. Similarly, in 2020, according to the graduate database, of the 93 students, who graduated with a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree, 89 students was awarded a class of honours.

In both years the number of students graduating with a BPharm(Hons) degree exceeds the 10 student limit.

Can the University of Auckland please provide the following information:

(1) Why in each of the year (2020 and 2019) did the number of students who graduated with a BPharm(Hons) degree exceed the limit of 10 students?

(2) Given the large number of graduates who do end up graduating with a BPharm(Hons) degree, can the university confirm that such a limitation of only allowing 10 students to enrol into the BPharm(Hons) program been repealed?

(3) If so, reasons as to why the limit of 10 students into the BPharm(Hons) is no longer enforced given that its clearly stipulated on the University of Auckland Limitations Schedule A? and whether any correction will be made on the University of Auckland's webpages?

Yours faithfully,

Ms Kim
