IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
You should be a registered pharmacist with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) or Pharmaceutical Society Northern Ireland (PSNI) and practising in the UK; if you are in Southern Ireland you should discuss whether or not the course will meet your needs with the programme leaders. You should be in a patient-facing role, having contact with patients for the equivalent of at least one day a week.
There are 2 intakes a year in September and March.
