    Really- I didn't know that! That's good news I suppose, as pharmacists have great knowledge of drugs but seem too constrained by current laws. Will they get extra training ie for diagnosis?
    yeah does sound gud doesnt it...a profeser from london school of pharamsy came over to talk about pharmacy at pur 6th form he told us that it woz to be introduced soon, but i dont know anythin bout it...sorry....does any one else!

    You may want to look at Manchester who too do an MPharm course, which is arguably the best in the UK.
    (P.S. cardiff is also really nice, but I was actually born there so am a bit biased)
    Both too far away I'm afraid. But thanks for the suggestions. Still Notts and Aston have good reputations both uni and course wise.

    Bath, Manchester and Notts are meant to be the best three i think. But all courses leave you with a MPharm that means you can practice as a pharmacist so it doesn't matter too much.

    Yup, at then end on the day, a degree is a degree.

    Erm...anyone else notice that we may slightly sway the original poster, you know, with the thread turning into the "applying for pharmacy 2005" thread :cool:

    I got all 6 offers for pharmacy and my experience was working with patients in the hospital. More of a medical work experience rather than a pharmacy one but the uni's liked it.

    So working in a pharmacy isnt too vital

    Also a few mates applied without any work experience and still got offers so having no experience isnt the end of the world

    Friend got an offer from kings asking for just a BBC while thay asked me for ABB :mad:

    Hee...which shows one thing, wannabe pharmacists are quick off the mark

    I guess both are versatile degrees. Job prospects (including, but not limited to)

    Pharmacy: Being a hospital/doctors/community based pharmacist, working on drug trials and in industry, research, teaching

    Psychology: clinical/educational/occupational psychologist, social work, research, teaching

    As well as jobs where the only requirement is to have a degree.

    I want to go to a quieter/smaller area i think. Like Bath, or Norwich.

    Yes, there does seem to be more people on here than I initially thought. I'll have to start spreading rumours about Nottingham's pharmacy department to keep the admissions low and give myself half-a-chance to get in!

    Pharmacy has 96% employment rate if i remember correctly. Not suprising though as it leads to being a pharmacist. Also theres a shortage currently so even better (well for us if we study it).

    Have you visited Notts? I went there for a conference and stayed in the halls of residence and fell in love with it! It has the best and most gorgeous campus ever! And I know what you mean about the competition there - overall the whole university has the highest number of applicants per place in teh whole of the UK [from Times University Guide 2004]
