Sunny Manon

Bachelor of Pharmacy and Management, commenced in 2017

1. Why did you choose your degree?

I love that the healthcare industry allows for a hands-on approach by managing and helping people.

2. Did you apply for any other programs? If so, which ones?

My other preference was a Bachelor of Pharmacy. Getting the combined degree of the Bachelor of Pharmacy and Management was just a plus.

3. How did it feel when you received your offer?

Very excited to start… but that also came with nerves.

4. Were you always interested in the Bachelor of Pharmacy and Management program?

Most definitely. After work experience in pharmacy and seeing the role that management plays in healthcare, I always knew I wanted to do it.

5. What was your favourite subject at high school?

Hmm… I'd have to say biology.

6. What subjects did you study for HSC?

Biology, chemistry, PDHPE, English (advanced and extension 1) and mathematics (standard).

7. What's your favourite unit you're currently studying at uni?

Social Pharmacy takes it out for sure.

8. What does your typical day at uni look like?

No day is the same, some days we're in the lab and the others in the classroom. Grabbing a coffee with friends between classes is always good too.

9. What surprised you most about this degree?

How well the pharmacy and management subjects go hand in hand. With such an active and social faculty and student body, I was also surprised about how many opportunities there were to participate outside the classroom.

10. How does university compare to high school?

There's so much more independence at uni. It's the best!

11. What are your classmates like?

Honestly, they're all legends.

12. What are your lecturers like?

Any time I've ever had a question they have been so helpful and really go above and beyond for us all.

13. Have you been involved in anything outside the classroom?

I'm going on a hospital pharmacy placement in Nepal early next year for 2 weeks. Getting involved with the social events and weekly sport the faculty offers is also great fun!

14. What are your future career plans?

I would love to be a Directing Manager in a hospital pharmacy and hopefully manage my own pharmacy one day.

15. Any advice for someone who is thinking about applying for the Bachelor of Pharmacy and Management?

Seriously, just go for it. You won't regret it. There are so many pathways with the degree and time on campus is some of the best days of your life.
