Advice on Preparation For this year's UCAS Application watch

    • Thread Starter

    Our school is now pressing us to prepare our UCAS application, for instance giving Section 10 advices and so on...

    Now I am fully aware that working experience is important for Medicine courses but I have no idea if I need any relevent experiences for Pharmacy / Pharmacology courses though! :confused:

    I am planning to apply for Manchester's Pharmacy courses, however, I would still want to give Cambridge's Natural Science a try! As the course itself is adaptive and I've heard I can choose to specialise in Pharmacological Sciences in the 3rd year!

    And as many others, I have a hard time choosing between Pharmacy and Pharmacology! I guess I need to get some advice from local Pharmists!

    It is better you gain some experience at your local pharmacy. It will just make your application stronger and will give you something to speak about at your interviews.
    About the difference between pharmacy and pharmacology , i was not too sure myself. Perharps this link could help you.


    G'luck with your application !

    Spam your local hospitals with requests for work experience - hospital work experience looks pretty good on your Section 10 because not that many can claim to have it. Nice choice with manchester, by the way.
