At the Faculty of Pharmacy and Biotechnology, GUC, we prepare our students to enter their professional careers, or further their education by providing them with skills and experiences that go beyond pure academic knowledge. We aim to help students develop team spirit, social, communication, and other critical skills that are necessary for effective and productive professionals. Our strategies to help the students include training programs, courses, workshops, and Students Active Work Groups (AWGs) that are dedicated to student skills development.
Joining AWGs has a great impact on the students’ social life, where they have opportunity to meet colleagues’ students from other faculties and programs, who share an interest to widen their social network beyond the study programs. Students also learn to look left and right, and to communicate effectively with experts as well as the general public.
