School of Pharmacy


The School of Pharmacy was transferred from Holberton Hospital to the Antigua State College (ASC) in 1998. With the transfer to the Antigua State College (ASC) the Pharmacy Programme was transformed from a three-year apprentice certificate course of training to an academically structured three-year diploma programme. To meet the complicated nature of pharmaceutical care, the programme was upgraded to an associate degree programme by 2017. The pharmacy programme is continuously evolving to ensure that students are equipped with the requisite knowledge and qualification. Hence, ASC is currently exploring the possibility of offering a degree in pharmacy in the near future. In the interim; we are seeking out partnerships with other Pharmacy Schools within the region.
