This year i have got my approval to go for OSPAP (overseas registeration course) from the royal pharmaceutical society, and i will be doing that in 2007 session hopefully. My question is how to apply for the pre reg places for 2008, as i m not going to the university yet and i 've heard that deadline for some pharmacies was this november..I am currently working at boots, and want to do my pre reg there, but i donno the procedure how to apply for it..

    Can anyone please help me in this regard....

    Hi Suri,

    Contact the prereg team at the RPSGB. They have a list of accredited training locations and tutors and will point you in the right direction.

        Pre-reg Place for OSPAP

        Hi Suri,

        I am a OSPAP student currently doing my course. My first information for you about pre-registration places is not to worry as you will get it even if you miss the deadline. As for BTC the normal deadline would be end of June 2007 for the next intake (This may change). You should contact your superiors at your work place as they may help you a lot. In order to apply for BTC you should apply online at the careers website when it is open (check the site regularly). The web site will be reopen for OSPAP's during the month of October (But you wont have the benefit of getting the location of choice) So I reckon you should apply early. All the best

              You have to complete and pass the OSPAP before you are allowed to pre-reg.

                    Working as a Pharmacist in the UK.

                    I am a student from China, considering pharmacist as a career, and I wanna work in UK. But I don't know how to make myself qualified.

                    I know I have to get a 4years pharmacy degree, so is it a Master degree of pharmacy??

                    Since I study chemistry in China and will get a BS degree, am I qulified to apply to the uni's pharmacy school??]

                    In all ,is it too difficult. I mean do I have to become a UK citizen??

                    Thanks anyway

                        Getting a bit monotonous these enquiries. Could we not have a sticky with the necessary info?

                            If you were me you woudn't say that this is monotonous. Every one has his/her own problems and looks for an answer. If that bothers you or others you should say that and everybody will stop sending messages like mine. Anyway I appologies for this monotonous message.

                              Fair enough. You need to contact the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (Rpsgb.org: Contact us) about the legal issues. I know Romania is part of the EU, but in the back of my mind there's something special about working requirements.

                              As regards employment, if you want to work in community, then contact one of the big chains (Alliance-Boots, Lloyds, National Co-op, Rowlands). If you are interested in hospital, then decide roughly where in UK you would like to go, find a hospital (or hospitals) in that area and contact the pharmacy dept direct.
