Our Pharmacy with a Foundation Year programme provides an exceptional opportunity to study for a degree in Pharmacy for students who do not have our traditional entry requirements.
Applications for this course are welcomed from mature students, students who have previously not studied science but wish to take a new career direction and students who have been disadvantaged during their secondary education. We particularly welcome applications from NVQ Level 3 qualified Pharmacy Technicians.
All applicants are considered on a case-by case basis and all candidates will be interviewed before being offered a place on the course.
