Okay so Im planning to study pharmacy from this September and will hopefully be graduating 2020. I aspire to move to the USA for my 20s and travel and just live good and then move back for my 30s and settle down. I was just wondering, for a degree like pharmacy - is there anything additional (e.g. exams/applications) I would have to do? and also, I was wondering why they make a lot more money in the USA rather than the UK. It's a really good bonus but just curious!

Yes, the UK qualification is not recognised in the US, you need to do additional exams, which could take up to 1-2 years.
The US qualification is PharmD and the UK qualification is MPharm. You can convert the MPharm to a PharmD but it requires more studying, $$$ and a whole lot of hard work!
