Undergraduate Training for Clinical Pharmacists

If you wish to become a Pharmacist, you’ll need to complete a four year Masters programme at an accredited university.

  • For this you’ll need:
  • At least five GCSEs in English, Maths and Double Science
  • A-levels in Chemistry and two of Biology/Mathematics/Physics at A – B grade.

If you’re a Scottish student, you will need at least AABB or AAABB in Chemistry, Maths, English, Physics, and Biology/Human Biology. You may also be expected to take Advanced Highers in Chemistry and/or Biology.

Please note: wherever you’re studying, we advise that you check entry requirements with any potential universities.

To register with the regulator, the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC), you’ll also need to complete one year’s practical training placement and pass the registration exam. This is known as the pre-registration year, or ‘pre-reg’.
