    To be honest even though the following subjects may share a few topics i don't think pharmacy and pharmacology should put in the same league as they are very different from one another e.g medicine and dentistry students attend the same classes in the preliminary years but you wouldn't amalgamate the tables would you?

    as this forum's subject matter has recently changed to solely pharmacy i have taken the liberty of filtering out the pharmacology courses to give a more accurate table. (taken from the guardian uni rankings, more of a mainstream publication that the one you used).

    lol i never said it was my top 20 pharmacy table. I have heard however that the teaching is pretty bad down there. My friends studying at kings college say the lecturers are more concerned with their research rather than lecturing the students.

    haha, I am delighted to see one of the universities that rejected me ( oh God, 'unsuccessful' looks so atrocious in UCAS) is at the bottom of the filtered list,while the ones that graciously offered me a place are at the top. Well, good riddance and I have nothing against your top 20 list:-)

    Sorry for the late reply..Bradford rejected me...I wasnt a bit sad...without sounding arrogant,my grades are pretty high.,but I would not want to find out their reason of rejection .I would be glad,if UCAS would remove that **** 'unsuccessful" from the file.. Regarding offers, i am glad that one of the unis i least expected has offered me a place.. but i am still waiting decisions from some and I will share my firm choice when all decisions are in;-)

    Good luck

    The pharmacology lecturers are the best ones at KCL imo.

    You can't have Kent at 11 and Greenwich at 14, because Medway school of pharmacy is a collaboration between Kent and Greenwich. Maybe this listed would be better distilled than filtered.

    I understood pharmasaurus to mean that it was altered to reflect only the pharmacy course.

    Maybe not only the guardian league table should be used, maybe someone can look into merging the guardian, times and the independent? However, how to solve the conundrum of Kent and Greenwich when both come together as one pharmacy school (Medway) yet they are ranked differently in league tables due to the league tables factoring in pharmacology?

    Dont you worry, the school of pharmacy at Sunderland is 90 years rich.That should say a lot about the department. Most Pharmacy schools in the provided list are either new or few years in operation.
