During the APPEL Matching Process, a placement provider has asked to meet with me at the same time as a lecture. What should I do?

If possible, students are asked to arrange meetings or calls with placement providers outside of scheduled teaching activities. Interviews can take place face-to-face, via telephone or video call and placement providers are encouraged to use these technologies if possible.

However, your Schools of Pharmacy wish to support students in making the best placement matches possible and understand that students may in some cases be absent from lectures to meet with potential placement providers. Where this is unavoidable, please ensure that you obtain permission from the relevant people within your School of Pharmacy before any planned absence.
