Student hub


Your guide to all the RPS resources to help you with your studies

We know as a student it can be tricky to know where to find information and what information will be useful to you.

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

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

During your studies

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

Summer placements and jobs

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 News section as they may announce when applications for summer placements are open.

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.

Hints and tips

Our blog has some great advice those who've been through it all before:


Where else can you get help?

  • If you have a tricky question, our Professional Support Team, who are experienced pharmacists and advisors, may be able to help.
  • Our local networks (Local Practice Forums), and specialist networks are also a point of contact for any support or queries.
  • Mentoring is also another great way to get support throughout your time at university.
