Course summary


This course is fully accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council as an Overseas Pharmacists' Assessment Programme (OSPAP), certifying international pharmacists to practise their profession in the UK.

Brighton is the most flexible course provider in the country. You are required on campus for two days per week, with the rest of the time being used for distance learning and independent study.

One of the days is spent in our clinical skills lab, which offers a simulated experience of working in a pharmacy, and you also have a chance to do a placement in a clinical setting to maximise your practical experience.

Our International Office is here to help you whatever your needs, and the course is renowned among students for its diverse, supportive and close-knit atmosphere.

Course structure

This is a full-time course with a combination of seven modules run over two semesters: one independent study and six university-based modules. The independent study module is supported by specifically written module materials and staff-led tutorial sessions. The remaining six modules involve a mixture of lectures and skills-based workshops and are run over two days per week at the university.


Satisfactory completion of this course enables you to undertake pre-registration training in order to apply for the General Pharmaceutical Council registration exam, which officially enables you to become a pharmacist in the UK.
