Too Many Pharmacists – Too few jobs!

Are you doing your O-levels and looking to study pharmacy in the UK? Think again!!

A recent report published by the Centre of Workforce Intelligence suggested that by the year 2040, 19,000 pharmacists will find themselves without a job if no action is taken now.

In the past there were too many jobs chasing too few pharmacists. However today the situation has reversed and we have too many pharmacists chasing too few jobs. 

The government may cut the student intake into Pharmacy Schools in England by 15% a year until 2020 to avoid creating an oversupply of pharmacists. 

Don’t let yourself graduate in the next few years without a guaranteed job and look for an alternative degree instead!

Don’t worry – You can still study a science related course. Why not think about:

1. Speech and Language Therapy (SALT)
Speech and language therapists (SLT) assess and treat speech, language and communication problems in people of all ages to help them better communicate. They'll also work with people who have eating and swallowing problems.

2. Radiography 
There are two types of radiography - diagnostic and therapeutic. Both need considerable knowledge of technology, anatomy, physiology and pathology to carry out their work. Many also undertake further 
training to become a sonographer.

3. Dietitian
Dietetics is the interpretation and communication of nutrition science to enable people to make informed and practical choices about food and lifestyle in health and disease.

The above are courses recommended by the NHS and will inshAllah guarantee a job when you complete your degree.
