The students had an exciting time seeing first-hand how pharmaceuticals are produced on an industrial scale. This involved a factory tour of the chemical and physical process from start to finish.

The students were also able to visit the quality control laboratory that must abide to US and European safety standards, making use of many of the analytical techniques that students will use in Chemistry based university courses.

The students also had the privilege to get the exciting experience of what it would be like to work in a 'clean room', in which no dust can enter.

This required extensive protective clothing and gave the students a glimpse into the seriousness of the pharmaceutical industry standards.

The visit was thoroughly enjoyed and will give the students some inspiration just before they start to think about their university application choices.
