The easy way to find help with your studies

StudentClass

As a student it can be tricky to find advice and information that's useful to you.

That's why we've created our RPS Student hub, bringing all of our resources together in one place, along with super helpful guidance from other organisations.

These resources are only available to student members of the RPS.

Not a member? Student membership is FREE and you automatically become a member of the BPSA, too.

Our Resources

Every degree is different, so we've grouped our resources into themes to help you find what you're looking for more easily.

Where can I apply for placements?

The Pharmacist Support website has a great list of where you can apply for placements in different sectors of pharmacy. You should also keep an eye on the BPSA's social media for announcements that applications for summer placements are open.

Looking to do your placement abroad or in other pharmacy sectors? The BPSA also offers opportunities to do placements abroad across all sectors of pharmacy through their Student Exchange Programme.


Thinking ahead?

You might be starting to think about the kinds of roles you'd like to go into once you finish your degree. Our careers information section has information and videos about some of the roles a degree in pharmacy opens up to you.

You may also want to consider how to improve valuable soft skills if you're thinking about going into a patient-facing role.
