NUS Pharmacy graduands statistics 2000 - 2011

Found in my alumni email some statistics that may be unknown to many. By the way, NUS is the only local university offering the course of BSc Pharmacy (scowl at those who thought we are poly grads). The health care sector now is bridging the shortage of pharmacists by bringing in foreign trained pharmacists and training foreign pharmacy graduates from the SPC recognized institutions. And of course NUS is increasing its pharmacy student intake exponentially as you can see below.


Projected BSc (Pharmacy) graduands - 125 in 2012, 137 in 2013, 152 in 2014 and 160 in 2015.

It would be interesting to know the gender ratio too, unfortunately there is no data for that. In my batch with a gender ratio of 1:10, it is thought that most males would rather be engineers or doctors instead of pharmacists. I heard that graduating batch 2013 has almost a 50:50 gender ratio. Trend change?

And I wonder how many of these graduates come out to become practicing pharmacists in due years.
