    Hi everyone

    Was wondering when you do placements from yr1 to yr 4 of MPharm at Wolves?
    I checked their course outline on the website and it doesn't mention anything about placements.

    Also any tips for getting a headstart for yr1 of the degree?

    Any answers would be appreciated, thanks

    Hi, I will be starting 3rd year this year!
    When I started back in 2014, they introduced a new course. This course is still being delivered so you should be completing the same number of placements that I completed in year 1 & 2.
    Both in year 1 & 2 I completed two community placements & one hospital placements. These were one-day placements! However this may or may not vary for you.

    Hope that helps and all the best! Feel free to ask more questions!

    I dont want to be a buzz kill but Mpharm graduates arent exactly doing too well at the moment. A few of my mpharm friends are unemployed and can only find jobs in small, local pharmacies. I dont get the appeal in doing a pharmacy degree? You hand out birth control pills and condoms..not exactly rewarding is it?

    No worries

    My timetable wasn't too bad! Second year is a lot less hectic than first year but even first year was fine!
    You may feel overwhelmed at first but that's with any new starting; you get the hang of it!
    We did have a day off. Again not sure if that's the case!

    Your timetable for the whole year isn't fixed as some sessions may be switched with others, but usually that doesn't happen so it's pretty much the same routine each week!

    I know of many MPharm graduates who are successful in securing a job! Your friends need to search harder.

    And trust me, there's more to pharmacy than just handing out condoms and birth control pills.

    Hi there

    Im not to sure to be honest, I spoke to them today about my time table and asked about the 26th of September, I looked at the welcome week through out the week, I would say it is important... Also my first lessons starts on the 3rd of October. I think its molecules, cells and system.. Have a look at the link and scroll down to pharmacy level 4.

    Hi everyone!
    Congratulations and all the best on studying pharmacy! I hope you all enjoy it!

    To those of you who are wondering if welcome week is compulsory, majority of the sessions held during welcome week are compulsory. You will be informed prior to each session whether they are compulsory or not.

    Hope that helps
