  • how to become a pharmacist in the uk




    US student with a degree in Political Science. are there any part-time enrollement programs in the UK? I have read online, but can someone give me a simple version of the steps to become a pharmacist in the UK.

    Usually obtain higher level in Chemistry, Physics and Biology. Then four years at uni followed by post reg year (intern) in community,hospital or industry.

      well lets say i have degree and i have completed all the preqrequisites for someone with a non-science degree. what would be the next step. the UK pharmacy degree is four years with a internship kind of equivalent, right???
      so are they certain schools for someone with a non-science background ??

        also are salaries really that low -35k for community pharmacist??
        if i completed my pharmacy degree in the UK is there anyway i could earn a higher salary since i am from the US, kind of like through a recruitment agency.for example i am ultrasound tech in the uk and i am from the US getting $30ph which is way more than i would get at home. this is because of the shortage. would that apply to pharmacy??

          Rule of thumb -- salaries in USA nearly double those in UK. Living costs are half those in UK. You would need to be a masochistic anglophile to come to UK.

          Salaries in community pharmacy in UK are roughly 1k per annum per hour per week. Ie work a hundred hour week and get 100K. Am informed that USA pharmacists can earn $120k for standard hours.
