During 4 years of my study in my university, I encountered many ups and downs as normal students would. However, being a student in the field of pharmaceutical sciences has given me a lot of opportunities to grow and educate myself. There are times where I think both education systems and facilities needed to be improved, but overall it is a good experience.
