Study Weekends

The purpose of each weekend school is to demonstrate and develop new skills and therapeutic knowledge in an interactive and stimulating environment, whilst promoting networking and sharing of experiences with other colleagues. These are held in the Cardiff School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Redwood Building situated within a short walk (ten minutes) of Cardiff City Centre.

Under its current structure, there are four weekend schools per academic year in 2013/14; however this may be subject to change for 2014/15. Students are normally expected to attend all weekend schools, and must cover the cost of travelling and overnight accommodation themselves.
