Course summary

Overview

The course is designed for qualified pharmacists outside the European Economic Area who are looking to become registered pharmacists in the UK, and is one of a small number that are accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council.

Completing the OSPAP postgraduate diploma allows for entry to the next stages of registering as a pharmacist in the UK, and in addition you can also apply to undertake a Masters research project. The content of this course reflects the accreditation requirements of the General Pharmaceutical Council.

You can choose to study this course as a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) or a Masters (MSc). If you choose to study the Masters level, you will also undertake a research project. This will be an original piece of work in which you will demonstrate both theoretical and practical knowledge.
