    I wanted to attend Bradford University for pharmacy, however due to the fact i only do science as a BTEC, they recommended me a year of foundation clinical science and then move onto pharmacy. i'm confused about the offer, is it worth it?

    I am currently a 3rd year pharmacy student, and honestly regret doing pharmacy at this stage.
    Competition for pre registration places after the degree is fierce,
    We already have far too many pharmacy students for a sector that is facing cuts.
    And honestly the degree I have not found enjoyable at all since year 1.

    Its so much stress for so little gain imo - and that is without doing an additional foundation year.
    you would end up spending 5 years at uni (bearing in mind the fees are likely to rise again after Brexit) for a career that is becoming less and less enjoyable with dropping salaries.

    Its up to you, but If I could go back in time, I would do seomthing like Biomed, or chemical engineering, those goes are always happy and much less stressed with better caeer prospects at this rate.
