    In an interview, you'd be expected to answer it by informing them which area of pharmacy you want to work in. Community/Hospital or Industry. Consultant Pharmacy is like the top job. But consultant community pharmacists rake it in too.

    "Well I'd like to do my pre-reg in industry; the design of novel drugs and formulation science really interests me."

    But then you might shoot yourself in the foot if they ask you what you know about formulation science. Sooo get researching.

    P.S. Remember guys, you're not a pharmacist until you've completed and passed your total of 5 years of uni and pre-reg!

    The mPharm degree takes 4 fours to complete, after which most people will take the Pre-Registration year which will also enable them to become Registered Pharmacists.

    Without the Pre-Registration you will not be allowed to do dispensery of drugs ect.

    Most Pharmacists after their 5 Years of study (4 for the mPharm, 1 for the Pre-Reg) will move to be employed in a Community or Hospital Pharmacy. However, if you intend to work within the Pharmacutical Industry, it is highly recommended that you take a Post-Graduate course, preferrably within the specific area of industry you are interested in, as the Pharmacutical industry is usually highly competitive and require some form of Post-Gradute Pharmaceutical study before accepting applicants.

    Thusly, you should add an extra 1-3 years (Depending if you take a Masters or a Doctorates course) of study/research before you go into industry.


    As for the interview, I recommend something along the lines of what JayEm said, although you should research a bit to back up your interest claims and sound more knowledgable.
