Introduction: The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) recommend emphasising clinical education within a balanced pharmacy curriculum. During the summer of 2016 the University of Graz (KFU), sponsored an elective English language teaching event on clinical pharmacy for undergraduate pharmacy students. This project aimed to evaluate the views, experiences and attitudes of Austrian students taking part in this clinical pharmacy teaching event. Methods: A mixed method study using a quantitative questionnaire survey followed by qualitative semi-structured, one-to-one telephone interviews. Results: The response rate to the questionnaire and telephone interview study was 67% (n=20) and 30% (n=6) respectively. Students were satisfied with the teaching event (very good: 90% (n=18); good: (10% (n=2). They felt inspired to learn more about clinical pharmacy in the future (100% (n=20)). Main themes included opportunity, relevance and the desire to shape their own future profession.
