    We hope you got the results you were looking for today. If not, don't panic there are plenty of fantastic programmes out there.

    Here are some top tips from our academics for anyone thinking of studying pharmacy at university:

    1) Do your research - students need to be clear about what pharmacy actually is, and where it's going in the future

    2) Explore all career options - bar medicine, there are very few courses which combine patient facing (clinical) roles, communication skills and scientific knowledge of medicines

    3) Think about patient interaction - pharmacy is the right subject for you if you enjoy science, health and communicating with people

    4) Last but not least - look at the course design and see if it suits your learning style

    Pharmacy at Bradford
    At Bradford we've been teaching pharmacy since 1927 and have an excellent track record of producing graduates who are well prepared for the world of clinical practice.

    We were the first to introduce a 5-year programme which integrates the pre-registration year and in 2012 we introduced our innovative Team-Based Learning curriculum - again a first in the UK.

    If you would like some advice and guidance our Pharmacy team would be happy to speak to you. Please visit visit our website for full details, or call our Clearing helpline on 0300 456 2666.
