    I'm looking to apply for pharmacy at university and was hoping to get some work experience at my local pharmacy (small, independent). I was wondering if i would need to write a formal letter and include my CV for VOLUNTARY work experience, or if I am just able to pop in without a CV and ask.

    Thanks.

    Edit: I am 16 going into year 13 for my A2's.

    I did my work experience at a hospital and didn't need a CV just said a few words, more like a personal statement sort of thing.
    Include it if you want though if you feel they'd like to know a bit more of what you've done in the past

    I would include one, along with a personal statement. It may not be necessary but it shows your dedication and what you have done. My mum works at a pharmacy in Tesco's and her boss is always looking for people that stand out, e.g. my mum because she is great with people.
