The Cardiff School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences’ annual Pre-Reg Fair was held on Friday 8 March in the Glamorgan Buildings’ beautiful Committee Rooms.
This year attracted the largest number of exhibitors since the Fair’s launch in 2003 and approximately 170 undergraduate students visited the stands.
The Fair is designed to give our undergraduates the opportunity to speak with potential future employers – mostly to talk about working as a pre-reg but also to find out about summer placements and possible other work experiences ahead of that.
Exhibitors from a wide variety of employers were represented – national and local community pharmacies and hospital pharmacy regional, industrial pharmacy, and military pharmacy representatives, amongst others.
Such a large number of exhibitors meant it was a squeeze and being a victim of our own success may result in us having to reluctantly leave the wood-panelled and marbled venue next year.
A good and productive time was had by all.
