Applying to university

All students applying for university will need to apply through UCAS. After shortlisting your preferred courses you will need to create a UCAS profile. This will include your:

  • personal information, such as support needs and school details
  • contact details
  • qualifications you have or are working towards
  • work history, if applicable
  • personal statement

Admission tutors will review applications with a focus on the personal statement. In your personal statement you should try to cover:

  • why you want to study pharmacology
  • why you are suitable for the course
  • what your future careers plans are

It's likely that you will attend an interview where you will be expected to talk about all this so don't exaggerate in your personal statement.
