German translation:Praxisnahes isiXhosa (Praxisnahes Xhosa)
Explanation:
Xhosa (now often called "isiXhosa) is one of the 11 official languages of South Africa; Xhosa is also the name of a people:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xhosa

So in an academic record, it refers to a language course, specifically, a course on (isi)Xhosa.

How you want to translate "practical" is maybe a matter of opinion. For a course called "Practical Business English", I would prefer "Praxisnahes Business-Englisch" or "Praxisnahes Geschäftsenglisch", not "Praktisches Business-Englisch" or "Praktisches Geschäftsenglisch", which is why I put "praxisnahes" in the target-term field above.

I think, the term has nothing to do with pharmacy, it just happens to occur on an academic record for a Batchelor of Pharmacy.
