第一個在英國過的聖誕節

<font size="2">Christmas 在西方國家是個重要的節日吧!Birmingham早在一個月前街上就裝起了閃亮的小燈泡,提醒著大家聖誕節就快到了!趕快捎個卡片給遠方的友人,記得要為親愛的家人朋友選購禮物。商店的櫥窗也用金色銀色等飾品妝點櫥窗,相當有過節的氣氛。<br /><a href="http://album.blog.yam.com/show.php?a=lydia0814&amp;f=3706771&amp;i=17333"><img src="http://pics2.blog.yam.com/7/userfile/l/lydia0814/album/1476d7c612b074.jpg" alt="" /></a><br />Birmingham City Council每年在11月中以後都會在市中心設置一個專門為聖誕節而開的Frankfurt Market,這裡的人都叫他"German Market"。主要還是賣一些德國來的特色商品,從吃的甜甜圈、啤酒到用的毛線帽、飾品等,應有盡有。最妙的是還有一攤在賣佛像,實在沒法兒把佛像跟德國連接在一起。我個人是認為這個市集就相當於年貨大街,讓大家可以好好逛一逛,順便刺激消費。不過,還是賣酒的攤子生意最好,整個市集約有五攤賣熱酒(mulled wine),每一攤生意都好到一個不行。Frankfurt Market每天從早上十點開到晚上九點,在這一個月時間,街上都被燈泡點綴地五顏六色,相當漂亮,不像印象中晚上冷清的英國街道,市集在12/24正式結束,其實那些在市集工作的人好像大部份是波蘭或是東歐人,反而沒看到啥德國人。上個星期開始店家都陸續在打折,有些店還打到對折,街上滿滿都是購物人潮。12/26 boxing day是大打折的日子,朋友們之前就上街先物色自己喜歡的東西,準備boxing day的時候大採購一番。<br /><a href="http://album.blog.yam.com/show.php?a=lydia0814&amp;f=3706771&amp;i=17322"></a><a href="http://album.blog.yam.com/show.php?a=lydia0814&amp;f=3706771&amp;i=17324"><img src="http://pics2.blog.yam.com/7/userfile/l/lydia0814/album/1476d7c40368e5.jpg" alt="" /></a><br />傳統的聖誕大餐是在12/25晚上吃的,不過英國朋友說有的人現在會上餐廳吃,或是吃中餐吃到下午兩三點,然後看喜歡的電視節目。原來在”前夕”吃飯是我們自己想的,正式的Christmas day是12/25。在12/25跟12/26這兩天,是沒有火車的,如果你想要到遠地朋友家過christmas,一定要提早出門,不然就是自己開車,否則是沒辦法到遠處的。公車的班次少到會讓你不想在寒風中傻傻等待。幸好我住在city centre,不然想要在boxing day逛街的話就得付兩倍的計程車錢才行。商店在12/24都早早關門,12/25不開,到了boxing day才開。而且有的店早上八點就開了!想要搶便宜好康請起個大早。我看購物慾大概是個全球性的風氣吧!</font>

留學生食譜之一

Pre-Registration Training

<font size="3">英國的藥學系雖然只要念四年,但是他們的實習是在學校畢業以後,當作一份工作一樣,叫做”Pre-Registration Training”,總共要受訓約45週以上才能去考執照 (registration examination),考過了跟英國皇家藥學會註冊之後才能正式被稱為藥師,注意,不是藥劑師喔!在這個國家被稱為藥師是一件很嚴肅的事情,表示你在執業時的一舉一動全部都在法律的規範下,並且也要符合藥師倫理,以後再找機會解釋兩者的不同。 找實習的地點可以分成兩大區塊---社區藥局及醫院藥局。學生要自己寫履歷,找推薦人,自己提出申請,然後等面試或被拒絕。學校不會幫忙學生找實習地點,也不保證學生一定找的到實習地方,也不會幫忙學生接洽相關事宜,一切都要靠學生自己,但是他們會提供相關協助,比如說提供有空缺的地點的訊息、教你怎麼寫履歷、教你面試技巧等幫助學生取得工作的技巧。 在這裡實習上基本就是一份正式的工作,但是實習單位有責任及義務提供實習訓練生(Pre-Registration Trainee)相關的訓練課程及指導,幫助他們成為一個專業的藥師,幫助他們獲取相關的知識以利通過執照考試,當然啦!考不考的過還是要看學生自己囉!除了接受訓練之外,最讚的就是還可以領薪水啦!當然跟台灣的實習生不同,這裡的實習生是要跟著藥師ㄧ起工作的。早退?亂請假?遲到?常翹班?上班打混?很抱歉,鐵定實習不過的啦!想一想,我以前對實習生的標準還不算嚴格嘛!畢竟我老了以後,還要靠這些人來照顧咧!我可不想拿自己的生命開玩笑呀! 英國的藥學生實習制度跟我的想法不謀而合,那就是你不需要實習也可以拿到畢業的學士學位,但是一定要通過實習才能去參加藥師執照考試。差別在哪哩,差別就在台灣的學生畢業之後不一定想當藥師,只是因為不實習就不能畢業,拿不到學位,所以在實習的時候,想盡辦法百般打混,浪費學生的時間也浪費指導老師的心力跟時間,認真的指導藥師還會被學生嫌,實在是很沒有意義。至少像英國這樣,不管有沒有實習,都至少給你學位表示你已經完成了大學學業,要走其他路也可以,還可以有個選擇的機會,再加上實習是直接跟工作相關的,從應徵到工作,都是要花時間跟精神的,學生找到之後會比較認真看待實習,也比較能確保日後藥事服務的品質。不過這只是個人想法而已啦!大家看看就算囉! 找地方實習早在三年級升四年級的時候就要開始了!我們的角色相當於這裡藥學系四年級的學生,這表示我去年在台灣的時候就要開始找實習的工作了!天哪!當我第一周聽到的時候,好像五雷轟頂,晴天霹靂,怎麼會這樣?!原來在我通過皇家藥學會的資格審查的時候,人家早就寄了相關的資訊來了,只是我當時想說沒有要馬上開始唸書,所以就沒放在心上。有一些同學早就找到工作了,還好有一些同學也還沒開始,有一些是申請了,但是被拒絕了,幸好我不是唯一的一個。大部分的社區連鎖藥局跟醫院第一輪都已經結束了,現在有兩間大型連鎖藥局還有一些空缺,所以重新開放應徵,前幾天費了九牛二虎之力,完成了在英國找工作的處女作,丟出了第一份申請,接下來還要繼續努力,大家趕快幫我祈禱,祈禱我可以獲得面試機會吧!</font>

解碼課表

<font size="3">之前有提過英國的課程表是以modules來表示,一開學學校就會告訴你這一年所有的modules以及他們所佔的比重(credits),我不曉得以學分數來表示是否適當,因為以我上的課程來說,一年下來一共九個modules,總共120 credits。如果以學分來表示,120學分一年再台灣來說是很恐怖的ㄋㄟ!不過10個credits並不表示一個module一星期要上十小時,不然不只我們一年下來會虛掉,老師們大概也是形容枯槁吧!這個學校與學生的溝通大都是經由資訊系統,有一個系統叫MAP (My Aston Portal),用自己的學生帳號密碼登入後,可以更改自己的個人資料,也可以連結上WebCT。這個WebCT可神囉!老師們會把自己上課的powerpoint在課前先上傳到這裡,學生可以先下載來預習。又因為每一個module上課的時間不一定,有的一星期上兩次,有的同一個module不同講師,所以可能同一天要上兩次。然後還要搭配上課教室…等等,很複雜的。問題是,我們的同學註冊兩個星期,因為學校作業的關係,我們都無法使用WebCT!天哪!每堂課每個老師都說你們不用一直抄筆記,內容都在WebCT上,重點是要注意聽,要跟上我所說的。班上同學面面相覷,內心的OS都一樣:我們又進不去WebCT!所以在第一周我們雖然有紙本的課表,短短三張,但是大家都要自己解碼。比如說:星期一早上十點,Lecture, Wks T1-T11, T14-T21, T22-T24, Module: PHMPP3, Room: MB549 (80)。翻成白話就是:講師授課,第一周至第十一周、第十四周至第二十一周,第二十二至第二十四周 (那跟第十四周至第二十四周有啥不同?),藥事法規及倫理,在MB549教室(可容納八十人)。看到課表的當下覺得這根本就是達文西密碼嘛!現在每一堂下課我都跟同學確認下一堂要去哪裡。現在還都只有lecture,比較單純,以後再加上資訊課程、PBL、WORKSHOP,我可能會因此而錯過上課…. 不過不要以為跟同學確認好就沒事囉,因為同學也可能會錯。像上星期五,下午兩點到四點的課表上是這樣寫的:Base Room, Wks T1-T5, T15-T21, T22-T24, Module: PHMCT3, Room: MB373 (40) (flat)。全班同學都準時到達教室,一邊還抱怨教室太小奸,椅子不夠多,我們班明明就將近五十人…..等到兩點十五分,開始覺得怪,我就用教室的電話打給系上的行政助理,轉語音信箱;轉課程的負責人,也轉語音信箱,這是怎麼回事?不過OSPAP的學生可都是具有社會經驗的人士,雖然是外國人,也沒在怕的啦!有同學就直接殺去五樓的辦公室,約莫十分鐘後,同學們就跟著課程的負責老師來到教室,才知道原來前面那段密碼的意思是在以上時間,這間教室提供給上這個module的學生做小組討論用的啦!老師說,這是誤會一場,外面天氣美好,沒事的可以離開,去享受美好的陽光。真是可惜,因為我們那天十一點就沒課了!有的同學就說,天哪!早知道的話我就不用在學校晃三個小時,現在就可以在家翹腳休息玩小孩了!上課的第一周就在一連串解碼的驚嘆聲中過了。我想,以後應該會越來越順了吧….希望!</font>

每逢佳節倍思親

<font size="3">今年第一次不在台灣過中秋節,第一次沒有拿到中秋禮金…來了這裡一段時間,大家可能會想知道中秋那一天我做了什麼跟家鄉有關的事吧!是想爸媽嗎?這是一定要的,所以這個不算。想同事嗎?也有啦,不過常常在MSN上看到大家,網路也很方便,所以也還好。是月餅嗎?嘿嘿,這個早有準備啦!從送給朋友的禮盒中A了幾個過來,再加上自己帶的台灣高山茶,也是很有氣氛的。想月亮嗎?拜託,這裡的月亮跟阿姆斯壯登陸的那一個是一樣的呀!那…..那該不會是烤肉吧?!這位大德,您不是吃素嗎?都不是啦!我在那一天做了一件大家平常也會做的事----對統一發票啦!你們可能會說,拜託,這有什麼了不起的!可是你們要想喔,我要先把一疊發票裝在快要爆開,被航空公司貼上”HEAVY”標籤的的行李箱中,一路從台灣運到阿姆斯特丹,再坐飛機到英國。然後在宿舍沒有網路的情況下,冒著寒風去學校上網抄中獎號碼。重點是,學校沒有中文輸入法,Yahoo奇摩上的熱門關鍵字也沒有統一發票,不能直接點選連結,要怎麼找咧?還好我夠機靈,在Google大神上鍵入”Finance”,試著找到財政部網頁,最後終於讓我找到中獎號碼啦!那天興高采烈地帶著抄下來的號碼回房間對獎,彷彿人還在家裡,有一種跟台灣接軌的愉悅感!^_^ 還好天公疼憨人,在我一連串的努力下,雖然沒中大獎,也來了個小小的兩百元,而且該張發票只消費了20元,還算可以囉!阿母,等我把這張中小小槳的發票寄回家孝敬您吧~~~~ <img style="BORDER-TOP-WIDTH: 0px; BORDER-LEFT-WIDTH: 0px; FLOAT: right; BORDER-BOTTOM-WIDTH: 0px; MARGIN: 0.7em 0px 1.4em 0.7em; BORDER-RIGHT-WIDTH: 0px" alt="" src="http://pics2.blog.yam.com/4/userfile/l/lydia0814/blog/147028ebd3bdab.jpg" /></font>
