You'll need to complete:
- a 4-year Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) degree approved by the General Pharmaceutical Council
- a one year pre-registration training course in pharmacy
If you do not have the qualifications to get onto a MPharm degree, you could do a 2-year pharmacy foundation degree. You would then take a job as a pharmacy assistant or technician and apply for the MPharm degree in your second year.
You'll usually need:
- at least 1 A level, or equivalent, for a foundation degree
- 2 or 3 A levels, or equivalent, including chemistry
