Sophie's story
Hear what it's like to study at Portsmouth

Hear from BSc (Hons) Pharmacology student Sophie Karen Llewellyn about her time at Portsmouth.

I love studying Pharmacology at Portsmouth because there’s a really great community of students and lecturers. After graduation I’m hoping to do a Masters of Research in drug discovery, and then after that hopefully I’ll be doing a PhD and then working in a lab in a pharmaceutical company. 

I’m president of the Pharmacological Society – we run loads of really cool events which are both social and academic. 

I would definitely recommend Portsmouth to any student who wants to go into further education. It’s not only a great university academically – there’s a great community feel here. You get great student support so I would definitely recommend it.
