In my five years, there was never a dull moment. It had its highs and lows, as any university experience does, but I can say mine had a lot of highs. A balance of studying and socializing was one of the reasons I was able to achieve my goals, attended and participated in various events, and, most importantly, I met amazing people who had a variety of positive influences on

The older we get the wiser we are and the more we understand the value of time, education, and quality of people we surround ourselves with. The college of pharmacy in university of Sharjah provided me all three qualities by the end of its journey. The Doctors and Professors were not only teaching us academics but they taught us life lessons that we’ll always be grateful for. The quality of people in this college will give you lifelong friends that will be a family for the rest of your life which is the greatest gift.

To me, Pharmaceutical Researchers are the competent individuals with an attitude that can impact patients’ lives and make a significant change for generations to come. They are the ones holding all knowledge and skill to provide effective, safe, and pharmacoeconomic use of medication, to achieve a definite outcome, and promote the quality of life. This is what I aspire to be. I want to inspire hope to those who need it, to put my utmost effort in being a scientist aiming to understand how to combat diseases which have baffled science; and to become a competent pharmaceutical care provider achieving excellence through research and discovery. This has been my aim and resolution since the beginning of my undergraduate degree. The College of Pharmacy helped direct my ambitions and forge a path for my desire to someday be achieved. In the University of Sharjah, I was able to participate in different research projects in the Sharjah Institute of Medical Research (SIMR), where I was taught the fundamentals of research and technology in the field of targeted drug delivery and oncological therapy. There, I learned how to effectively apply for several research grants and proposals from international pharmaceutical companies such as Boehringer Ingelheim and LABCO Limited. This would not have been possible without learning essential skills through the undergraduate courses – “Listening” and “Communication”. Relaying the project to the community is the keystone for the idea reaching the market. Thus, I immersed myself in oral and poster presentations, in national and international conferences. I was honoured to receive multiple first-place awards which further enhanced my experience in selling my ideas to the public. Social relationships were also of great significance as they nurture more productive and organized teams. Accordingly, I volunteered in multiple events and conferences to enhance my social status, improve my ability to work within a team, and emphasize on helping both the student and the wider community. I found a lot of self-satisfaction from these experiences. However, none have been as rewarding as the trust my professors have portrayed. I was humbled to receive The Student Role Model Award for 2 consecutive years. Their trust and integrity motivated me alongside my relentless passion into attaining the highest marks. This was reflected in my academic standing were I graduated with cGPA of 4.0 earning the title of first class honours and first of the batch of 2019/2020. Today, I hold the dream of becoming a professor entrusted with the skill of inspiring the hearts, enlightening the minds, and holding the hands of future generations. My goal is to specialise in targeted drug delivery, and to pass on my knowledge to succeeding generations, promoting their successful development and growth. I will always hold the College of Pharmacy to heart and soul as nothing I have achieved would have been possible without their continuous motivation and support.

The Bachelor of Pharmacy at the University of Sharjah was a fruitful experience that sparked my interest in biomedical sciences. The bachelor's courses fulfilled my original fondness of chemistry and have built a solid foundation for my current postgraduate studies in neuropharmacology. In parallel, the college embraced the diverse interests of students from clinical and hospital pharmacy, and pharmaceutical industry to marketing of medicines. More importantly, the college maintained a family-like atmosphere where faculty members were not just mere professors but indeed career's advisors throughout college years and thereafter.

Coming from a completely different environment, I thought my university years will be beyond mediocre. After the experience, If I’ll have to speak as an undergraduate, I learned that each new stage of your life requires you to outgrow places that belonged only to the previous phase. For now, speaking as Berihan, I advise you to make sure you always stand out. Always grind hard to have it all. The grades, manners & social life. You can have it all, believe me.

Colleges are very important and education is a must, but the difference is the staff, from doctors to cafeteria staff, everyone at the University of Sharjah is very friendly and knows how to respect students. In addition, most importantly was my friends who define my trip which they are now a part of my family. We ate, played, Studied and had our breakdowns though exam weeks for 5 years. If time can go back, I will continue to choose the College of Pharmacy at the UoS over and over again.

During the 5 years of obtaining my bachelor’s degree, I’ve gained knowledge of basic medical sciences as well as advanced medicinal chemistry and clinical practice. Studying at the college of pharmacy, Sharjah University has equipped me and my colleagues to work in diverse settings such as working in community pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, research institutes and prestigious pharmaceutical companies. I’ve practiced working in both a community pharmacy and a hospital pharmacy post-graduation before deciding to obtain a master’s degree in public health in the US. I’m currently a second-year student at Rollins school of public health-Emory University, global health department-infectious diseases concentration. I’m also working as a research assistant in the epidemiology department- developing recommendations for sexually transmitted diseases in correctional facilities in collaboration with the CDC. I believe I wouldn’t have reached this position if it wasn’t for the exceptional and extensive training I had at this college.

I never had thought during my school study I would join the college of Pharmacy! but it was my destiny and I had never regretted these 5 years which I can define as my best 5 years of my life so far! I had gained my vision over there and I knew which way I shall take as a path for my life! I wanted to be a scientist who can teach students and leave a fingerprint in the sea of science. All of this vision was inspired during my study of pharmacy courses and being encountered with great professors who were pushing me always to think creatively. I graduated in 2016 and traveled to Japan and got my master's degree in 2019. and Now I am taking a new journey to do my PhD in the best university in Japan ( University of Tokyo). I feel I would not have done this without Allah in the first place then with the support of my parents and professors who were really supportive even from abroad and helped me as much as they could when I was an undergraduate and graduate student! I am really grateful and thankful for everyone!

My name is Sana, a pharmacy graduate from the University of Sharjah (UOS). Throughout the past five years, I definitely learned a lot. Before I entered UOS, everyone was telling me that university life is boring and hard, they said focus on your study and the rest isn’t important. From my experience, I say each one of us has his alphabet with which to create poetry. Of course, it’s something essential to maintain a good academic standing GPA and to be up to date with knowledge but for me, that isn’t enough. The most important thing is to be able to learn from your mistakes, to have the brave to say I don’t know when you don’t and to make your best in order to get the answer. To get out of your comfort zone! each struggle you might face will give you the power to shape your future! It’s okay to fail every now and then as long as you keep on rising up. We all have such a beautiful special quality that makes us different in our way. Don’t try to copy others, become the best version of yourself!

These five years felt like fifty, but they were worth it! With all the caring professors along with friendly classmates, you'll get through the challenges that you might stumble upon. The stress during the exam periods, of course, is unforgettable, but those times were the ones that have helped make me who I am today. During the end of my journey in pharmacy and even after graduation, while seeking advice from my professors for graduate education and career opportunities, they were and still are always willing to help with whatever they can.

When I was in my last year of secondary school, I never thought that my life as a pharmacy student in UOS would be as enjoyable as it was. The college has definitely taught me a lot, not only about how wide and interesting pharmacy field is, but also how I, as an individual, can develop and change. Socializing, traveling, being part of the scientific society and collaborating with the doctors and professors have had a forever-lasting impact. I graduated last year as a proud and confident pharmacist, who loves and believes in her profession and the change it can make to humanity. And I don’t think that I would have ended my college experience that way if it wasn’t for the people who guided me through this five-year journey, my dear doctors that I am always proud of. - If you love what you do, rest assured that you will make it big when it’s your time to shine- That’s my motto"

My name is Judy Abdalla and I am a graduate of this college. Five years in the college of pharmacy has taught me a lot of important life lessons and the fact that pharmacy is exactly what I wanted. Even though there were so many struggles to get through; I knew I had people around me to help me. All the condensed courses plus countless exams and we still had time for some fun throughout our years together. These long, intense classes were made survivable with the amazing way the professors explained them. I would like to say thank you to all my professors and colleagues for these five long years; without you, I could not have survived.
