Every now and then a familiar face pops up. We especially like it when it’s a former OzTREKK student being featured on an Australian university website! UQ Pharmacy recently let us know that one of our students, Brian Kim, was one of them! Here’s what Brian has to say about the Bachelor of Pharmacy at UQ:
“UQ is well known in Canada and it recognizes previous studies which was a major deciding factor in choosing to study here. In addition, it satisfied my desire to study abroad and experience a new country.
“The lecturers and tutors are one of the best things about UQ. They are some of the highest quality educators I have experienced and they genuinely care about making sure you have a positive learning experience.
“UQ offers a great program that incorporates a good balance between practical and theoretical learning, a great learning environment, and great staff to help you through the challenging degree.
“The field of pharmacy is changing very rapidly with pharmacists taking on more responsibility when it comes to patients’ health outcomes. This, combined with the fact that pharmacists are employed in many different industries means there is an exciting future for the field, one that I want to be a part of.”
