BTEC level 3 Applied Science to pharmacy

Hi guys,

I'm currently coming to an end to my first year at college whilst studying a BTEC level 3 extended diploma in applied science. I'm keen on studying pharmacy at university and I have been told from progress tutors, teachers and career divisors that some universities do accept BTEC student.

I was wondering what universities are they?

Thanks

p.s I am NOT studing A-Level chemistry.

You will be able to get onto most life/bio science courses with the BTEC in Applied Science however Pharmacy is a different story and you will usually require A level chemistry unless you go to Medway School of Pharmacy where you can do an MPharm providing you get D*D*D* in Applied Science

Not true.

There are 5 universities on UCAS that accept BTECs only with Distinction grades. In my course, the A2's above me have been offered uni places for pharmacy.

Fair enough, I could only find 1 which didn't require Chemistry A level, you could also do a foundation year which doesn't usually require Chemistry

Hi Sammi,

Hi,

On the basis you get those grades, and you pass your interview this would not include a foundation year.

If you do not achieve the D*/D*/D* you could enter our BSc Pharmacology and Physiology programme (http://www.msp.ac.uk/studying/undergraduate/bsc-pharmacology-physiology/index.html). If you get 65% and over in all modules, you can transfer into the second year of the MPharm.

So do not be disheartened, there are other routes!
