The undergraduate pharmacy programme commenced in 1970 in the then Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, which was part of Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy of the University of Benin. In December, 1975 it became a School in the College of Medical Sciences. The Senate of the University upgraded the School into a Faculty in October, 1981 but was reverted to the status of a School in October, 1998.



In October 1991, Faculty status was once again restored as a result of the Collegiate System whereby related disciplines in the University were grouped into Colleges on the advice of the National Universities Commission (NUC). The Faculty thus became part of the College of Health Sciences, as the new College was then called. In December 1993, the Collegiate System of the University was scrapped with the Faculty of Pharmacy becoming an independent Faculty.



The Faculty offers Postgraduate Programme leading to the award of Masters and Doctorate degrees in the Departments. Specialized areas of research have been evolved in each department with academic staff members actively participating. The Faculty is still presently housed it temporary buildings at the Pharmacy/Pre-clinical complex and plans to build the permanent structures for the Faculty of Pharmacy are being considered.
