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. Find out what you can expect from the day.

Guidance relating to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Based on the latest information we have received from the UK Government Applicant Visit Days will be held virtually.

You can read our latest information and advice for visitors regarding coronavirus.

Our Applicant Visit Days normally run from December to April. These are for offer holders for our undergraduate Pharmacy course.

The interview process

At this stage, we are expecting interviews to be conducted virtually, via Microsoft Teams. We will be continuously monitoring this based on government guidelines and will update this page if the situation changes and we are able to provide the option of interviews on campus.

If you're invited to attend an interview, it means that we would 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 three parts: a panel interview, a situational judgement test and a pharmaceutical calculations test.

Find out more about your course and the University

The aim of the Applicant Visit Day is to help you in your decision making.

You’ll learn more about studying pharmacy at Bath by taking an in-depth look at our facilities and listening to a talk on the course.

You’ll also meet the lecturers and find out more about the work you’ll be doing if you study here.

What to expect from the Applicant Visit Day

Helping you decide if the University of Bath is for you.

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. Accommodation tours may be run depending on room availability.

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 see our Students' Union, food outlets and the campus pub and night club. You could also visit The Edge, our arts centre where you can take dance, art and music classes.

In the event that all our interviews, Applicant Visit days and Open Days need to be held virtually, or you are unable to visit the university in person, we also offer virtual campus tours. There are also other ways to connect virtually with us and find out more about our courses, campus and students. You can find more information about our virtual tours and campus videos here.
