Words fall short for describing the student life I pursued during my BPharm. MCOPS has been at the core of my personal and professional development. The dedicated faculty at MCOPS is one of the finest in the country; they are like family; guiding you in all aspects of life. Learning is offered, with practical experiences, that meets international standards. MCOPS provided me with unique opportunities to engage in internships, workshops and conferences not just nationally but internationally. It offers a platform to build network with the pharmaceutical industry. Manipal gave me an all-rounded exposure to academics, culture, and sports, which overall was a bittersweet experience, but it transformed me into a better human being. Manipal is genuinely inspired by life; in all the senses, it is not a place it is a feeling.

My journey of past four years at MCOPS had a significant impact on my life and it helped me shape myself into a well-rounded individual. What makes the curriculum so different is the in-depth focus on research and academics, which is afforded by access to excellent faculty and all round development through cultural and sports event. Hands on training experience in laboratories equipped with advanced facilities helped me to gain better understanding of pharmaceutical industrial settings. MCOPS is affiliated to International Pharmaceutical Student Federation, which gave me an opportunity to be part of Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium in Japan, 2018 and World Congress, 2019 in Rwanda. MCOPS is definitely the best choice for an aspirant to begin career in Pharmacy.
MSc (Pharmaceutical Sciences) at University of Copenhagen Copenhagen, Denmark.
Freshly out of high school and the pressure that comes along with it, MCOPS was a breath of fresh air. The diversity in students, the teaching style of our professors and the opportunities presented were beyond imagination. MCOPS offers a comprehensive course combined with laboratory experience that makes understanding aspects of pharmaceutical science much easier. All the professors I had over the course of four years were amazing at their subject and inculcated their passion in us. MCOPS also offers opportunities for a college life beyond the classroom. During Sanskriti, the cultural activities that I have been part of – both as a volunteer and participant – have been one of the best memories of my life. Pharmaquora – the academic fest – helped us think beyond textbook and polish our research abilities. All in all, I can say that MCOPS was an experience that I truly treasure. We all came from sheltered houses but Manipal quickly became home.
