“I am looking for a degree course that will give me the basis for advancing my career further in the field of pharmacy. I have always nurtured an interest in the healthcare profession and have a strong desire to work in a environment where I will be able to interact directly with patients. After considering various career roles I settled on becoming a pharmacist as it seemed to have everything I was looking for in a job. It would be a responsible position in a community based setting that would involve me in consulting individuals and advising them on suitable medical treatments that would make them better.
Before embarking upon a degree in pharmacy, I wanted to be aware of what I’d potentially be getting myself into for the rest of my life. I didn’t really know what a pharmacist actually did during the day and so I decided to take a part time job in a pharmacy to see what a typical day was like. For three months I worked in a busy store, liaising closely with pharmacy staff and other healthcare professionals to meet the daily needs of patients. I found it to be a very interesting and satisfying experience which confirmed to me that it was a career I’d like to pursue.
I’m not at all daunted by the prospect of university life, as a matter of fact I’m positively looking forward to it. Apart from enhancing my academic abilities I also see it as a opportunity to experience the vibrancy of student life and to further develop my social and personal skills. Ideally I’d like to enrol on a degree programme that is dynamic, clinically orientated and has strong links to the pharmaceutical companies. This is why I have spent a considerable amount of time looking for a suitable course by reviewing the many different universities and programmes on offer. After a lot of searching I am pleased to say that your institution meets all my requirements and appears to me to be a great place to continue my higher education.
Furthermore upon visiting your campus I got the feeling that it was a very inclusive environment and a great place to study. Whilst there I met course staff and lecturers and after talking to them came away with the feeling that they will be there to give me the required support, supervision and guidance that I need throughout my studies. I feel confident that a degree from your university will definitely help to kick start my career and will give me a competitive edge when applying for jobs after my graduation.”
