Positive - experienced tutor and good support
Negative - some contents are repetitive
I'd recommend this course to a friend
It’s a very interesting course, but unfortunately too many graduates and not many jobs
My advice to future students is: Choose another degree
Positives: Good materials and facilities
Negatives: too expensive
My advice to future students is: study hard
Positives: Highly respected degree being an honours degree at a good university, and a small cohort means you don’t get quite as lost in the crowd
Negatives: I believe it is more difficult than the OP required to enter the course, and a lot harder than everyone expected. Also uni 5 days a week is so draining and hard to find time to have a social life and/or work
My advice to future students is: Make sure you know what you’re getting into, 4 years of quite intense very early mornings. Also some of the content isn’t directly related, and you become very overqualified for your job.
Positives: The positive aspects of studying pharmacy are that you are taught a tremendous amount of information and in the end are quite knowledgable on conditions and medications. Therefore are able to answer many health related questions people may have and recommend remedies for patients.
Negatives: The course in itself is very difficult. There is a lot to remember and learn. The content load is quite heavy and the assignments are mostly hurdle, meaning that even though you may have passed the unit already i.e have 50% of the whole unit, when going into the final exam you need to pass that exam in order to pass the whole unit.
My advice to future students is: Weigh up your options and only study pharmacy if you genuinely want to become a pharmacist. The field is highly saturated and it is very difficult to find a job. Ensure you dedicate time and effort in the course.
