    Synopsis

    Ninety seven per cent of students enrolled for Bachelor of Pharmacy graduated in 2020-21. This is about a five per cent increase over the last three years. In this article we discuss the stats on how many students who opted for higher studies, how many students opted for campus placement, gender ratio and more such parameters.

    In 2022, the Ministry of Education’s National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) ranked 101 colleges under the Pharmacy category. Colleges ranked in the NIRF offered a four-year undergraduate (UG) programme and two-year postgraduate (PG) programme. However, not all colleges offer both UG and PG. For reasons of uniformity and accuracy, in this article we have considered the top 10 colleges in pharmacy that offer only four year undergraduate programmes.

    Careers360 has done an in depth analysis on the top 10 institutes across India which offer a four year UG programme in pharmacy. Our study included detailed information about the graduated, placed students, and the ones who opted higher education over the last three years. It also includes the percentage of the local, national and international students who were admitted in these top pharmaceutical institutes.

    Graduated With Higher Numbers

    In three years, most colleges in the list showed an increase in the percentage of students who graduated in the minimum stipulated time of four years. Together these colleges had an increase by 4.73 per cent and reached 97 per cent in 2020-21.
