    So... how could a canadian become a pharmacist in the UK?

    Is it best to go to university/colledge here or in the uk?
    Too expensive$!? Education equivalent between the countries?
    Different programmes? What is the demand there?
    Any thing else to add?


    Thanks.:love:

    I think it's difficult to get licensed in other countries due to the general requirement to get experiential hours in the country (most likely unpaid), not to mention the fact that you've spent 4 years learning drug names proprietary to Canada... England can be a whole other ball game, just like the States.

    I don't recall off-hand, but I think the RPS (Royal Pharmaceutical Society?) is the organization that manages this kind of thing. They might have an FAQ or at least forms to help you on this.

    Does anyone else have an answer or personal experience on the matter to share? It would be greatly appreciated.
