Support for students

Pharmacy students on an MPharm degree course in Great Britain are eligible for support from the charity.

For example:

  • we have helped students dealing with a range of stressful situations through telephone support from a Listening Friend who can listen and support in confidence. They can help the student deal with any emotional, financial and study related stresses they may be facing
  • our wellbeing services have helped equip students with tools and techniques to help them better manage stress and anxiety
  • we have provided information and advice to students covering a range of issues including money management, exam pressures and finding a placement
  • we have helped students facing unexpected hardship due to unforeseen circumstances or events such as ill health, bereavement or loss of income. In such cases we have provided a student hardship grant of up to £1,500 to assist with general living costs and bills. Payments cannot be made towards tuition fees
  • we can provide a bursary to final year MPharm students, further details can be found here
  • for students who are struggling with an emotional issue, we are able to offer funded counselling through our counselling partnership.
