Trinity College is recognised for academic excellence and a transformative student experience. The historic campus is situated in the heart of Dublin city centre. With a tradition of scholarship spanning more than four centuries, Trinity is home to talented and inquiring minds, a liberal education, and research conducted at the frontiers of disciplines.
The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Trinity College Dublin was the first centre for pharmaceutical education in Ireland. A Pharmacy Degree has been offered by the School since 1977. Originally the School was sited in Ballsbridge and teaching a maximum intake of 50 undergraduate students per year. Since October 1997 the School has been located at the East End of the TCD campus in the Panoz Institute, a purpose-built facility. Student intake is now 75 students per year.
Academic staff in the School, though originally assigned to the traditional pharmacy disciplines (Pharmaceutics & Pharmaceutical Technology, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmacology and Pharmacognosy, and more recently Practice of Pharmacy), are now teaching integrated courses formulated in the context of European and International curriculum strategies.
