Help me decide

Hi ! I’m got offer from University of Bath, University of Sunderland and LJMU. I apply for mpharm, I need some opinion on where is the best university for pharmacy ( facilities, courses) and best in term of location ( affordable and accessible) as well as Muslim friendly. Thank youu !
Hi! I'm currently at Bath - I'm not doing mpharm but several of my housemates are. They seem to be really happy with their course here, and there seems to be quite an emphasis on practical experience here. My friend got to spend a week in Cornwall working at a pharmacy there. Sorry I don't know much more.

As for living here, I really enjoy it. As a very shy person I was worried about moving away, but Bath has so many societies and they are all so friendly! There is a wide range of accommodation both on campus and in the city. There are also quite a lot of alcohol free/quiet/single-sex options. Finding external accommodation in Bath starts in about November/December and is definitely on the more expensive side but the SU runs events to help. Expense wise, I find my maintenance loan covers most things luckily, although I do have a summer job. You can get here pretty easily by train or bus, although usually you have to travel to Bristol first.

Bath SU has quite an active Islamic society - you can find out more about them here Bath University Islamic Society - BUIS (thesubath.com).

Hey! I know choosing between Uni's is a difficult decision! I am a recent graduate from LJMU and although I did not take the pharmacy course I have three friends who did and they loved it and could not recommend it enough 🙂 LJMU's mpharm course has excellent links and work placement opportunities with leading local hospitals, community pharmacies and primary care teams and is taught by one of the oldest and well-established schools of pharmacy in the world. LJMU has modern state of the art facilities that will ensure you excel in your studies alongside having excellent student support services on offer to you whenever you need it. Every undergraduate curriculum includes Future Focus during Level 4, an e-learning resource and workshop designed to help you to develop your talents, passion and purpose.

LJMU is in an excellent location in Liverpool's city center, filled with beautiful shops, cafes, gardens etc with such a huge range of things to do. Me and my friends loved to play mini golf or go to the docks and stroll around before having a coffee and doughnut in one of many little cafes there! You do not need to go to bars to have fun, Liverpool is such a special and busy city with so many things to do! LJMU have so many different societies to join, from sports to musical theatre etc the list is never ending, you are guaranteed to find something you enjoy and it is a great way of making friends 🙂 LJMU is a vibrant and diverse community who prides itself with inclusivity. We have over 25,000 students, and over 2,600 members of staff from more than 100 countries worldwide. This diversity of students and staff bring enormous richness to both the university and the City of Liverpool. LJMU prides itself on being an integral part of Liverpool multicultural communities, it is very Muslim friendly 🙂

I hope this has helped with your decision, do try and visit more open days and applicant days to help you decide or to refresh your memory if you have been previously- our next one is Friday 21 June 2024, 9:00 - 3:30pm! Good luck and hope to see you at LJMU

Hey,
I'm currently at Sunderland, congrats on securing your offers!
As a Muslim myself I would 100% vouch for Sunderland, we have a thriving Islamic society and the uni and SU regularly host a range of events on campus.The community is very close, and you'll also find great amenities close to campus such as halal shops, restaurants and social spaces.
I find it really affordable to live in Sunderland too, the accommodation is cheap ( you can choose single gender and single culture flats) and the overall cost of living is cheap too when it comes to food shopping/eating out etc.
I have friends who study MPharm who really rate the course :smile:
