Hey! I ended up deciding not to go to Kingston and chose a different uni instead. You've got other options as well so don't be worried! Which other unis did you put down? I guess everyone experiences are different and you have time so its okayyyy

Hey everyone,

I'm a third-year pharmacy student at the University of Reading. Whilst I cannot comment on other departments from other unis I will say the pharmacy department is genuinely really good here. The lecturers here are really approachable which I think is such an important thing when studying. It means whenever I'm struggling I always feel I can approach them and ask.

Here you can see the team here: http://www.reading.ac.uk/pharmacy/meet-the-team/
Interesting note, you might have seen Dr Al Edwards in the news recently he's been on a lot of different channels talking about COVID-19.

I hope this helps you out and feel free to let us know if you have any other questions!😊
From,

Amina
I put down Kingston as my safe choice and now I've got an interview with them on Wednesday so I'm wondering if anyone here's done the interview? If so, how was it? What were the kinds of questions asked in the interview?

Thanks and I very nearly did the same thing myself until my application referee was like wait, why have you put that in, you don't have one so I was lucky there. I'm sure you'll get it solved

Has anyone who applied to Kingston University done their group interview??
How did it go and what questions did they ask?

I've also applied KCL, UCL, Reading and Birmingham for Pharmacy. I've received offers from KCL, Reading and Birmingham. I'm waiting for my Kingston interview as I said before and I'm waiting on UCL for a response. I am applying for Phamacy.

Yh, it wasn't not too long (for me), just half an hour. They had some maths questions and ethics questions and its quite simple.
