Entry and English requirements
You should normally be a graduate of a recognised university and be registered as a practising pharmacist with the General Pharmaceutical Council. For other health professionals interested in studying this programme, you should be a member of an appropriate professional body.
Applicants must have their application supported by their employer. All applicants must be supported by a work-based mentor (normally a more senior pharmacist). Applicants must also ensure that they have a UK practice base to work within and access to patient notes (community-based students will normally need to come to an arrangement with a local GP practice). These arrangements MUST be in place before you submit your application. Without this support your application cannot be considered.
If your first language is not English, you will need an IELTS score of at least 7 overall with no less than 6.5 in all components or at least 250 (computer-based test) with a score of not less than 5.0 in the TWE or 100 (internet-based test) with not less than 24 in each of the components.
Fees for the current academic year can be viewed here. Please note that tuition fees do not cover travel, subsistence, delegate fees and accommodation at workshops. An additional charge will be made for costs incurred.
