MPharm Pharmacy graduate Matthew cites the compassion he saw from his mother working in a care home as one of the reasons he pursued a career in pharmacy. In this video, Matthew talks about his journey studying Pharmacy at here at Sunderland.

My mum was a carer in a residential home, which was one of the reasons that pushed me towards wanting to study a healthcare degree. The care and compassion she shows people who are vulnerable, I saw that from being very little. Every day is different and that's what appealed about the pharmacy career too, you never know what's going to come through the door that day. Sunderland has an absolutely excellent reputation. When I did tours and met the staff, it just felt right and that's how I ended up studying at Sunderland."
