Q: Foundation degree
Asked by Anela
Hi, i have applied for the science foundation degree at Kingston. After the degree, i want go onto the pharmacy degree.
I would like to know whether a place for the pharmacy degree (after the foundation year) is guaranteed, as it wont be worth doing the foundation year in the first place. And what grades do you need at the end of the foundation year to progess further?

A place on pharmacy is guaranteed SHOULD you achieve the correct grades. When I moved onto Pharmacy I believe I was required to get passes in the all my exams independently of the module overall, but please check this with the faculty for an up-to-date, 'straight from the horses mouth' guide on what grades they would like you to achieve.

I hope this is helpful, from Charlie.
