The overall course is quite good but since this is a pharmacy degree you have to be prepared to work hard as the course covers a lot of different aspects of pharmacy. Lecturers wise it depends on who it is, some are very good and keeps you engaged but others are not but I think this is true at all universities, it’s just the luck of the draw. Non-UK students are treated same as any student but they may have more assistance in terms of extra help from services from the university if they require it. Huddersfield is a town so it’s small compared to cities personally, I like it because it’s not as busy as some other cities yet there’s still a lot of things to do plus Leeds and Manchester are only a train ride away so it’s convenient. I applied to Bradford, Durham, Wolves and Lincoln as well the reason I picked Huddersfield is because it’s relatively close to home as personally I didn’t want to move too far away and I had family which studied here as well.

There’s a lot of factors when deciding on a university and is probably one of the biggest decision of your life, so really think about it and take your time don’t be rushed in to it. What I would say is that Pharmacy is no mean a easy course and we are working to become healthcare professionals one day so we do have to work hard. Most of the staff and lecturers at Huddersfield are ready and happy to help if you have any problems. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Hello, i have some questions regarding part-time jobs. Will it be easy for me to find a part-time job? Are there enough work placements available? Does it make a difference that i am a foreigner even though i speak fluent English? And will the university assist me with finding a part-time job?
Thank u very much!

It depends what part-time job you want but I don’t think it’ll be difficult to find one if you ask around in Huddersfield. However, if it’s a part-time job at a pharmacy it’ll be slightly more difficult but I do know some people that have. Lecturers and personal tutor may help you find a job but this depends who it is and sometimes they email pharmacy students about a vacancies for weekends or summer placements available but it may not necessarily be in Huddersfield so I would just ask around. Getting a part time job is fine, I work over the weekend but balancing out work and university is very important. Foreigner or not it honestly doesn’t make a difference. Also for pharmacy we’re given four days of work placement every year as part of our course and an assignment will be based on your experience, these placements are not paid and are just for our own benefit to experience a real working pharmacy.

Hello sorry for the late reply I have not been on student room for a while. Personally I came to university through A-Levels so I’m not too sure how BTEC students will find it. I’m guessing they may find it slightly bit more difficult depending on what BTEC they done but it shouldn’t be a massive gap. First year is all about getting use to the university and how different it is to college or high school. It’s definitely a learning curve but it’s nothing to worry about too much as long as you do enough revision and attend lectures etc. you should be fine.

Hello sorry for the late reply I have not been on student room for a while. I did biology, chemistry and maths which definitely set up a strong foundation to study pharmacy. I used my knowledge from all 3 subject during my course, some more than others, maths is not necessary essential but it’s a good subject to pick which relates to the course. However, at the end of the day it depends on which subject you’re most confident in to achieve those A-Level grades.

First year is not necessarily hard it’s just getting use to the difference in teaching between university and college. Pharmacy wise especially in Huddersfield has quite a lot of contact times e.g. lectures, tutorials and practicals and we’re in most days of the week, it is manageable but don’t think it’s a walk in the park either. If you put enough hours in revision and attend lectures everything should be fine don’t worry about it too much.

Hi, I'd just like to know how the pharmacy timetable looks like as I want to know what I will be taking on, like how much free-time you get a day and what a week consists of?

Thank you
