After you apply
If you meet the academic requirements for the course you will be asked to complete an online aptitude test. If you are successful in this test you’ll be invited to an open day which includes a group exercise with other candidates. This is not knowledge-based so there are no right or wrong answers. It’s an opportunity for you to show us how you formulate opinions and set about solving problems.
The online test and group exercise are often used by universities as part of the recruitment process for pharmacy courses. Our test and group exercises are based on the way the UK National Health Service recruit staff.
