Pharmacy Courses Seats Left Vacant In Hubli

Pharmacy Courses Seats Left vacant
No takers for the Pharmacy Courses seats, which is offered in the colleges in Hubli and Dharwad. The twin cities could barely fill 50% of the seats for the current academic year.


B N Patil, Principal, KLEU's College of Pharmacy said, "Compared to the last years, this number of the students enrolled for Pharmacy courses has come down and hardly 50% of seats have been filled up. In his college used to receive around 350 applications for B Pharma and with the dwindling number it had become an uphill task to fill the intake for the course.

The twin cities have two colleges, such as KLEU's College of Pharmacy and Soniya Education Trust's College of Pharmacy, which offer B.Pharma and M.Pharma courses. While each college has an intake of 60 students, the response of the applicants is like unconcerned.

According to V H Kulkarni, Principal of Soniya Education Trust's College of Pharmacy, there are no takers even for the seats under government quota.

The main reason cited fro the downside is the slow growth of the pharma business in the state and as per industry observers, the number of pharmaceutical companies is not increasing in Karnataka unlike Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Goa. Earlier students from other state used to come to Karnataka to learn Pharmacy, but now there is a change in trend as more pharmacy colleges have come up in those states, say experts.

Neeta Gynappanavar, a B.Pharma final year student said that awareness has to be created among science students at PU level on the job opportunities available fro pharmacy students. According to final year B.Pharma student Kushal Hukkeri, most of the students go for professional courses like medical and engineering and other technical courses to get job early.

"But they should know that there are lot of opportunities for pharma graduates in pharmaceutical companies, research and development and government sectors," the student said.
