Studying pharmacology at Cardiff has been a fantastic experience for me. I have found the teaching and pastoral support to be excellent and the course has provided me with all the necessary skills that are needed to pursue a career in research or in a medical field. The course entails a mixture of hands-on practical classes, lectures and group work seminars that help to build a really cohesive learning environment. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Cardiff University and definitely recommend the course!
