College of Pharmacy Hosting Graduate Student Open House
LEXINGTON, Ky. (October 19, 2020) - The University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy will host a virtual Open House for prospective graduate students at 4:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, October 29, 2020.
Prospective students will have a chance to discuss the opportunities for graduate study in pharmaceutical sciences and hear directly from students in the nationally-ranked program. The Open House will begin with an hour of presentations by current graduate students describing their academic backgrounds and research projects followed by an informal question and answer session with the College of Pharmacy students and faculty.
Attendees will also receive information about academic requirements for entry into the program and how to submit a competitive application. The College of Pharmacy offers stipend support, paid tuition, and health insurance for those admitted into the program.
“It’s a unique opportunity for prospective students to hear how a degree in pharmaceutical sciences is incredibly versatile and applicable to those interested in science careers. I think attendees will find that there’s something for everyone from students majoring in the basic sciences to those interested in public policy,” said Dave Feola, UK College of Pharmacy Professor and Director of Graduate Studies.
The Open House will be especially useful for students who are currently a junior or senior majoring in Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, or the Social Sciences and who have a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
