Pharmacy interviews and Applicant Visit Days

If you're invited to attend an interview, you'll also have the opportunity to take a closer look at the course during an Applicant Visit Day.

Our Applicant Visit Days normally run from December to March. These events are invitation only for applicants invited to interview for our undergraduate pharmacy course. They’re designed to give you a real insight into what it's like to study here as well as the opportunity to get some tips for interview.

The interview process

If you're invited to attend an interview, it means that we’d like to meet you to discuss your application further, before deciding whether or not to offer you a place.

An interview is a compulsory part of the application process for our pharmacy degrees and consists of a panel interview, a situational judgement test and a pharmaceutical calculations test.

Interviews will take place on a different day to our Applicant Visit Days and are carried out virtually via Zoom or MS Teams.

Our Applicant Visit Days provide more subject-focussed information than University Open Days, giving you a real insight into what it's like to study pharmacy here.

You'll get the opportunity to meet current students and members of staff from the department and ask any questions you may have to help decide if Bath is right for you. You’ll also learn more about studying pharmacy at Bath by taking an in-depth look at our facilities and listening to a talk on the course.

If you're joining us on campus, you will have a chance to attend a student-led department and campus tour towards the end of the day, which will include visiting our dedicated Pharmacy Practice and Simulation Suites.

Safety and wellbeing on the day

To enhance safety and wellbeing during your visit, we strongly encourage you to wear a face covering during the day while indoors. We also advise you take a lateral flow test before the event and to not attend if the result is positive.

Learn what student life is really like

No one knows what it’s like to be a pharmacy student at Bath better than our current students.

They’ll be there on the day to answer any questions you have and to chat to you about their experiences. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the campus on a tour with students.

Campus life isn't just about studying and there are many ways that you can make the most of your university experience. While you're here, you could visit our Sports Training Village (STV), where you'll have access to the same facilities used by Olympic athletes. You could also see our Students' Union, food outlets, campus pub and night club, as well as our arts centre (The Edge) ​where you can take dance, art and music classes.

The City of Bath is only a short bus ride away from campus, so why not take a look around when you visit us?
