Student Success Story!

Dear AAPS,

2017 was the year I entered Toronto as an immigrant from Nepal. It was a complete change in the culture, lifestyle and working environment in comparison to my previous experience. Although I came to Canada with my Bachelors Degree in Pharmacy, I didn’t have knowledge of how things work in Canada in the Pharmaceutical industry. I decided to bridge the gap with a Post-graduate diploma here in Toronto. Among number of colleges I reached out to, AAPS came to stand out of many. I didn’t have second thought after I visited AAPS for the first time. I enrolled in PG Diploma in Pharmaceutical QC/QA/RA course which i think was the best overall course to cover all the knowledge I wanted to gain. Today, I am proud that I made that decision.

After 8 months of study(still had 4 courses to complete), I got a co-op opportunity to work at Eurofins Experchem where I excelled. I was confident from day 1 because of all the knowledge I gained at AAPS. Finally, after 3 weeks of hard work into my co-op days(backed by knowledge base from AAPS) I was offered a full-time job which I gladly accepted. This was all possible because of AAPS and all the support provided by my mentors here who helped me to bridge the gap from the beginning when i was newcomer in Canada to the present time.

Thank you AAPS team for helping me succeed in my goal. Kudos to all my mentors as well as my classmates.
