I just finished my first year of pharmacy school and would like to look into getting a pharmacy job in London, UK once I finish school. I will be getting my Pharm.D, but I don't know if the degree transfers, or if there is another exam to take... basically I have no idea how to go about figuring this out. If anyone has any information that could help me, it would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to know about transferring to the UK, what kind of salary pharmacists make in London, and what kind of pharmacy opportunities are available. Please provide website links if at all possible. Thank you!

I am looking into this matter as well. Studying the United Kingdom but practicing here in California. I know rules are strict but I can't seem to find anything concrete on websites that has legal writing explaining the rules and regulations of practice. I had heard from many people that a degree out of the US will not allow you to practice in the US.

The General Pharmaceutical Council has replaced the RPSGB (Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain) as the regulator for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy premises in England, Scotland and Wales.

have a look here www.pharmacyregulation.org/ that's new website.

Your information is very nice but can you tell me how much time does it actually takes to complete all of these exams & can we work as an intern (with a payment) in US?
If yes, how much amount will we get as an intern?

It depends you good you are. It took me only five days to study for exams. My intern salary was $28.00 per hour (in 2006).
