  1. Wat about barchelor of pharmacyWat about barchelor of pharmacy

  2. Pharmacy is all to do with drugs and their development. In a way, it is related in some aspects to biochemistry, especially, the science in the development of drugs. However, pharmacy training goes a step further, in that pharmacists can also administer the drug dosage and help the doctor in coming up with the correct diagnosis. Many pharmacists get employed by drug companies such as Glaxosmithkline,Betahealthcare, Pfizer,etc going the whole process from developing the drugs to carrying out tests. Government as well as private hospitals are also major employers of pharmacy graduates, helping the doctors in procuring the right drugs to the patients. The pay varies widely, and the starting pay can be anywhere from kshs.40,000 to kshs.140,000 per month, depending on your employer.

  4. The fee for regular students within a particular University is the same, regardless of the course the students are pursuing. The fee for JKUAT regular (government sponsored)students is usually between kshs.35,000 and kshs.55,000 per year. The last I checked was two years ago, so that's why I have given you the wide range, since I'm quite sure the fee today is slightly higher than the fee two years ago. In case you get the Helb loan, kshs.8,000 per academic year will go directly to the University as fees, so, you will just subtract the amount you need to pay by kshs.8,000.
    Pharmacy is a five year degree course.

    In case you need any more clarification, you can always feel free to ask.
