This year I am applying through UCAS for 2017 entry to do Pharmacy (MPharm) at university and but I am not sure if I meet the requirements on the website about relevant work experience.
On the site it says that a candidate should have work experience in a pharmacy or "a related healthcare discipline". I do not have formal work experience in a pharmacy or with a pharmacist however I have volunteered in a pharmacy store of a hospital and taken part in a research project on how pharmacists are perfect to help relieve the pressure off GP's but the general public aren't aware on the services pharmacists provide outside of dispensing drugs and it's in the process of getting published. Despite my inexperience in an environment directly related to pharmacy, I definitely have an awareness of the importance of the NHS values as both my parents work for the NHS and my sister is studying to become a pharmacist.
I would definitely like the opportunity to study at Bath not just because of its stunning location and excellent pharmacy and pharmacology department, but also its research on how drugs can help prostate cancer is amazingly interesting to me.
Please help me figure out if i should still apply!!
Should I still go?
