See UK-recognised pharmacist qualifications if you completed your training in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

See EEA qualified pharmacists if you qualified in an EEA country with a 'relevant European qualification'.

See Overseas qualified pharmacists if you qualified outside the UK, and your qualification is not a ‘relevant European qualification’.
