This year, Health Education England introduced a brand new application system for pre-registration places within the UK called Oriel. The British Pharmaceutical Students' Association have created a report detailing Oriel applicant feedback after this year's process.
In order to represent students’ views, the BPSA undertook a survey to gain feedback from those who applied for the new Oriel system. As pre-registration training is a key component of eventually qualifying as a pharmacist, the application process is of great importance to third year MPharm students across the United Kingdom.
The survey garnered 158 responses, which have been grouped into key points and recommendations for Health Education England (HEE) to take forward for future years. Our Executive will endeavour to continue working with HEE to ensure that all students’ views about the process can be represented and considered.
