In the first period of newly established time from 1998 to 2000, Faculty of Pharmacy participated to train 3-year inter-college pharmacy students with the help and licensing of the Hanoi University of Pharmacy. In 2001, the 5-year regular pharmacy undergraduate program was recruited for the first time at the Hue College of Medicine. At the same time, the training program of inter-college pharmacists was changed from 3 years to 4 years and the Hue College of Medicine and Pharmacy officially granted the diploma of graduated university pharmacist. Since 2001, Faculty of Pharmacy has trained 1928 pharmacists including 992 of which are inter-college program and 936 regular ones. Currently, there are 807 students of all types including 627 regular students and 180 inter-college ones. Along with the development of the number of students, the input quality of regular students is guaranteed at a high level with the enrolling exam scores ranging from 23 to 25 (on a total scale of 30), which are always the highest enrollment points in Hue University and also high in comparison with two other major centers of pharmacy training in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Most students after graduation are employed in the first year and worked in a variety of fields including the academic field (about 20%), the medical representative (about 45%), the clinical pharmacy (about 15%), the pharmaceutical industry (about 15%), and the other fields (about 5%). The quality of our training pharmacy students is highly evaluated and partly confirmed by the recruiting universities, hospitals, or companies. In particular, some students after graduation keep going to study in the post-graduate programs in the other university such as Hanoi University of Pharmacy, Ho Chi Minh University of Medicine and Pharmacy, or in the foreigner countries such as Thailand, Korea, Japan, France, United States. With the outstanding academic achievement, Faculty of Pharmacy has gradually affirmed to deserve to be one of the major centers for training pharmacists throughout the country.

In the enrollment area, Faculty of Pharmacy enrolls students nationwide, mostly students from 18 provinces in the central region of Vietnam and and the central Highlands, ranging from Thanh Hoa to Khanh Hoa. In addition, some students also come from the Northern and Southern provinces, such as Ninh Binh, Dong Nai, Binh Phuoc, and especially from Laos.
