          Careers

          Your future career

          To qualify as a pharmacist in the UK, you need to complete a year of pre-registration training after your Pharmacy degree and pass a registration examination set by the General Pharmaceutical Council.

          Because the disciplines that contribute to a Pharmacy degree are diverse, you can follow a range of careers, such as:

          • clinical pharmacist in the community
          • hospital pharmacist
          • roles in primary care.

          You could also follow a career in academic pharmacy or in the pharmaceutical industry.

          Working while you study

          Our Careers and Employability Centre can help you find part-time work while you study. Find out more about career development and part-time work

          All candidates offered a place on the course will be required to satisfactorily complete an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (formerly known as a CRB check), including a check of all cautions and warnings as well as convictions, before their place on the course is confirmed.

          You will be required to have a satisfactory Health Check.
