You can always see which courses are available in clearing. You may need courses with a foundation year as they have lower entry requirements.
Have you looked into nursing or other career prospects?, pharmacy with foundation years may accept you if you meet the ucas point requirement

Hi @Rohan007best,

have you looked at the courses available at the University of Chester? I think there is a number of courses that would be of interest to you and your studies :smile:

Wishing you all the best,
Ellie

Also look at apprenticeships and trainee schemes - not for qualification as a Pharmacist but still relevant work :

As advised above, Clearing is an option. Put together a list of uni's you wish to contact and have all your information to hand to get an idea of what offers are available.
Good luck!

Hi @Rohan007best,

Sorry to hear that you are disappointed with your results.

Have you got an alternative course in mind that you would like to study? It might be worth thinking about applying for other courses/to other universities through Clearing. Get a list of potential courses and universities together and seek out their Clearing Hotlines - they are there to help you :smile:.

Here is the Clearing Hotline for the University of Lincoln: 0808 164 4444

Best of luck,
Olivia :smile:

Hi there @Rohan007best, :smile:

Amazing to hear that you will be starting with us in September studying Pharmacy. We look forward to welcoming you! 🎉

A lot of great friendships are made during foundation years and it will give you a whole year to really get a feel for the course and allows you the time to think about the direction you want to go in moving forward.

Let me know if you have any questions about the course or life here at UCLan and I'd be more than happy to help!

All the best,
Sarah

That's great news. The way to look at it is you're on the path you wanted even if it is going to take an extra year. Congrats :dancing2:
