Applicants wanting to work in the UK can only work as Pharmacy Technicians prior to registration with the RPS. Applicants from Australia and New Zealand need only complete a pre-registration period of 4 weeks in order to meet the RPS standards to work as a Pharmacist. This may change however in the future and it is advisable to check current RPS requirements prior to your arrival in the UK.
The period of pre-registration for applicants from South Africa is in excess of 12 months. Registration with the RPS is compulsory in order to work as a Pharmacist; there is also a requirement to attend a written examination at the end of this period.
