    Hey Sammi,

    I got a couple questions for you.

    I have an interview Monday morning for MPharm. I'm Canadian, so I've never done an interview for a UK university before. What should I expect? I know, people have asked this a bunch, but I'm wondering if anything has changed for the upcoming year. Interview is also on skype, btw.

    I was also verbally told by admissions that there is a good chance I will receive an offer and that it will only be unconditional. If whatever happens and I do not make the conditions (by a couple %), is it possible to still get an acceptance? Do you think I'll have to take the foundation course and then try to apply for MPharm.

    I'm adamant about coming to Medway, so I'm trying to figure out how all this will work.

    Thanks.

    Hey Sammi,

    I had an interview Monday and it went really well. I just wanted to know how long it usually takes for Medway to send out an offer?

    Good morning,

    I'm glad to hear your interview went well. It takes up to 10 working days to have an offer sent out to you.

    I hope you decide to study with us, and I very much look forward to meeting you in September

    Best wishes,

    Hey Sammi. Yeah, things went great. I got an offer for MPharm. I'm a Canadian student, so the only condition for me is to pass my undergraduate degree (Bsc. Biology), which I am already on track for to finish before September. Looks like Medway is about to get a little more Canadian, eh. :P

    Good morning,

    I have a responses.

    The Irish leaving cert from 2017 onward is graded H1-H6.
    H1 = 36 tariff points
    H2 = 30
    H3 = 24
    H4 = 18
    H5 = 12
    H6 = 9

    So for pharmacy we would require H1/H2 in chemistry and another science based subject and 3 additional subjects at H3.

    Pharmacology would require you getting 120 tariff points so you could have a combination of the above. Biology is preferred at higher level.

    I hope this helps?

    Best wishes,

    Hi, I would be interested in doing an independent prescribing course however I am a locum pharmacist who has been registered for 17 months (and havent had much work in the last few months). Is it possible for me to apply later in the year once I have reached 2 years minimum experience, or would I also have to do a clinical pharmacy certificate/diploma/ Msc as well?

    Hi Sammi,
    I am a secondary school student studying in the Republic of Ireland and I intend on studying in this university for the academic year of 2018/2019 I am just wondering if Great Britain leaving the EU in 2019 will impact my chances of being able to be eligible for a student loan? Or will the rules still apply as they are now to EU students up until the day Great Britain actually leave?
    Thanks Sammi

    Good afternoon,

    Sorry for the delay. Here is the response I got for your question:

    "The entry requirement is to have a minimum of two years' post-registration experience. He/she doesn't need to complete the clinical diploma first.

    However, they do need to be in work and be able to show that there is a need for them to be able to prescribe in their current job.

    I am happy to send a pack to the applicant. Or they can get all they need to know here:

    http://www.msp.ac.uk/studying/postgr...ing/index.html"

    If you would like a pack, please direct message me an e-mail address.

    Sammi
