What our students are saying?


Pursuing knowledge and learning pharmacy skills is not a cup of cake to achieve. It takes a lot of endurance and continual arduous efforts with the proper caring environment which I perceived it here at KDC, with a highly effective administration and a team of experienced teachers who are at all times ready to inspire the students and help them learn. KDC has been successful to position itself as the preeminent pharmacy college within a very short phase of its establishment. I really found it as the right place or a learner who aspires to achieve a good academic background for pharmacy education in both practical and theoretical knowledge as well. I am glad to be part of KDC.
