I am thinking to apply to a Pharmacy degree at the university of Nottingham. I’m not sure if this degree will aid me to a job in industry such as GSK or AstraZeneca in which I am very interested in. However after reading articles on the student room a lot of people have said that it is almost impossible to get into industry after a pharmacy degree and the majority will most likely be working in community. Nether the less I find the course content very interesting and think I will enjoy it but I’m hesitant to apply if I won’t be able to work in industry afterwards. Is Pharmacy a good way to end up in the pharmaceutical industry? If not, what is a better university course? What advice would you give me to increase my chances of working in a pharmaceutical company? I don’t want to completely give up on pharmacy as I’ve already written my personal statement and I am very interested in it.

Pharmacy is more clinical than lab-based which is why very few MPharm graduates end up in industry. I would have a look at pharmacology/pharmaceutical science/medicinal chemistry instead?

Good luck either way.
