- 5 GCSEs at Grades A-C or equivalent, including English, Maths and Science.
- A good level of spoken English will be required in order to take up a placement. Students whose first language is not English will have to do a short test before starting the course.
The course is a vocational qualification and therefore includes an assessed work placement in a Pharmacy (either in the community or hospital). Students must demonstrate their competence by completing fourteen compulsory units and three optional units.
