Hi guyssss, I cannot find a forum about pharmacy applications for 2021. Has anyone received an offer at strathclyde university for pharmacy yet? I haven’t and I was kind of stressing😭 I hope they get back to me soon but I was just wondering if they’ve started giving out offers or not as I don’t know anyone else applying to pharmacy this year.

Hey there! Some of our departments won't start to process offers until after the UCAS deadline so please don't worry If you've not heard back yet this means you're still being considered for the course. Pharmacy is a very competitive programme with us, so it can take our admissions staff some time to process all applications. Even if some people have received offers- if you haven't then this is not a bad thing. You should hear back by the 31st March at the latest, and please don't panic in the meantime! Keep working hard at your key subjects this year

Thank you so much!! I’ve honestly been so scared because most of my friends have been getting offers for their courses too so I was naturally quite concerned but thank you for replying!☺️

hi there I am slightly worried as I missed out on the higher chemistry grade for pharmacy but I am predicted BB in my advanced higher chemistry and Biology. I only just returned to Glasgow after living in the UAE for five years and have come back to a whole new education system in fifth year resulting in me missing out on the grade. this has been mentioned in my reference so will I still be considered for the course?
Hey there hs777 Sorry for not replying sooner! Whether or not you're able to be considered depends on how far off the grades you were, and if you are meeting the entry requirements in other subjects. Every year our Pharmacy department deals with lots of applications, where they look for strong academic grades alongside a good personal statement and reference. If our admissions team believe from your whole applicant portfolio that they can make you an offer then they will do- but please bear in mind you will be applying alongside applicants who already meet the S5 requirements and it is quite competitive.

It's good that you are still taking your AH Chemistry this year, as this will show you are driven to continue on with your studies. I can't guarantee we will be able to make you an offer, but my best advice would be to continue to work hard this year with your key subject areas. It's also an idea to ask your teacher to include the disruption to your learning (moving between the varying systems) in their reference so that this can also be taken in to consideration.

Hope this helps a bit!
Best of luck,
Caitlin

Hi, I achieved all A's in all my other higher but a C in higher chemistry and the distruption to my learning was mentioned in my reference according to my teacher. I also managed to gain work experience despite covid to show my passion for pharmacy.
Thanks for getting back to me hs777! It's up to the admissions team within our departments to make a final decision on your application. As I say, they'll consider everything on your application and it seems like your grades are strong and the work experience will be helpful. Chemistry is of course one of the key areas they look for you to pass in S5 though, so I can't say whether or not they're able to be lenient on this. Definitely continue to work hard at your Chemsitry and other subjects this year and then if you do get an offer you'll be setting yourself up well I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

If you've any more questions feel free to PM me anytime! Let me know how you get on whenever you hear back.
