With the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) arrival, we are approaching to a European convergence proposal but there is also space for diversity. All the study plans leading to the obtaining of the same official degree might have the same total numbers of credits and they might contain the common educational contents defined in the own degree guidelines. These common educational contents will define, for each degree, a percentage of the total credits that might be passed. This proportion will be established in the own general guidelines and it will be able to vary between 50% and 75% of the total credits of the degree. In addition, there is some non common educational contents that will be able to represent between 25% and 50% of the total credits of the degree. They belong to a specific educational content which is determined for each university in a free way. In this content it will be able to include not only subjects but the own universities but also will be able to asses, in number of credits, practices in a company or institution, the works managed academically and included in the study plan, as well as the recognition of educational activities performed in the framework of the universitary or interuniversitary programmes, such nationals as internationalas.

In this work we pretend to perform a comparative study about the study plans and professional profiles of the degree in Pharmacy in different Spanish Universities which already have announced its proposal
