Student Case Study

Zeshan Rehmani

Zeshan was first employed as a trainee Hospital Pharmacist, moving on to be Pharmacy Manager in a branch of a large supermarket, and in a new and developing chain of independent pharmacies before taking up his current position as Director of MCR Health Ltd, where he is currently working on launching an online pharmacy.

He says of his time at OSFC “There was a big difference in the grades I achieved at GCSE and A Level and I believe it was only possible due to the support and excellent teaching at OSFC.”
