    The OSPAP is very comprehensive, if you choose a northern university you will probably get more education,books and catch up than you want. As it is full time I don't think that you would want to study anything else on the side.

    Good luck,

        Hi Chiemelie

        If you just started applying to OSPAP this year and manage to secure a place for OSPAP, that's pretty quick I'd say! Which uni are you intending to go? I am still contemplating if I should start this year or next year...and which uni to join...

          Hi chiemelie,

          I am also a Pharmacist from India, now I am working in Malaysia. I like to do OSPAP, before doing that I want to know about the oppurtunity for Pharmacist in UK, Pay and cost of living. Since you are in UK could you please help me?

          With regards,

          Shahul

            Hi

            For all people want to get detail information on OSPAP

            . Write IELTS and obtain a score of minimum 7 in all and an overall score of 7 or more
            2. Apply for recognition of your degree to the Royal Pharmaceutical society of GB.. follow this link for full details
            Rpsgb.org: Registration from other countries

            3. You need to do a one year full time conversion course (Costs abt £7000-8000)

            Then you do a year training as pre-registration pharmacist (with pay abt £ 16,000.00 - 18,000.00 year), which I am doing now.

            Then write the registration exam and you become a registered pharmacist. And the scope at present is good.

            As regard to any short course my adivce is as follows
            currently there is no such short course and if you find any it will be waste of money. I will suggest that you visit the RPSGB web site and read some interesting informations(there are plenty), read NICE guidelines etc
