As a pharmacy or pharmaceutical sciences student attending the event, you will be able to gain first hand insight into the Pharmaceutical Industry through a series of talks by pharmaceutical scientists working within the industry.
This event was cancelled last year due to Covid-19. We are keen to keep connected with our students in a virtual world, until we can host the conference again at one of our sponsor sites.
This event when held at either Astra Zeneca, Pfizer and GSK has been very popular over the years attracting students from all over the UK.
Are you a pharmacy or pharmaceutical science student considering a career in industry? If so, you should sign up for our FREE virtual event for members and small fee for non-members (or maybe consider joining APS for the same cost) on the 8th of April – Industrial Insights 2021.
This annual event is a chance to hear from those in industry on how to succeed at securing your dream job, networking opportunities and a ‘Q & A’ session where you can ask questions to the panel.
Any pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences or related science postgraduate or undergraduate student considering a career in the pharmaceutical industry.
