With 2020 being our societies first official year as part of the union, it’s sure to be a fun and exciting year. We aim to provide and support an educational and social environment for pharmacy students. Every year we have ran a successful annual ball with 350+ attendees, with many sponsors including ATIK & Community Pharmacy Scotland, this is our flagship event, which we hope to continue.
We collaborate with many UK wide organisations to enhance the MPharm student experience, such as the British Pharmaceutical Students Association, Royal Pharmaceutical Society, Pharmacist Support, and many more. We regularly hold academic consultations where we help influence and develop the MPharm course from a student’s perceptive. We are passionate about educating the wider public as well as students on the role of the pharmacist and aim to provide networking opportunities to enhance future careers.
We have a proven track record with many award-winning students past and present winning awards both locally and nationally. This is our first year with RGU Union and we can't wait to see what it will bring. New students are always welcome to join the PharmSoc, if you have any queries please contact us via our email, Facebook or Instagram pages.

Covid-19 has had a major impact on the fashion industry. With many fashion retailers having to temporarily close their doors, resulting in staff either being furloughed by the government or losing their jobs.
