I am currently a pharmacy technician but would like to return to university to study pharmacy. My only hurdle is I haven’t studied chemistry which is a requirement at higher level. After hours of google searching I am struggling to find either a crash higher course in chemistry or a nat 5 course in chemistry near by (live in Edinburgh). Does anyone know of any nearby or distance learning?

I'm not aware of any colleges who will advertise as allowing people to crash higher, however Edinburgh College does higher chemistry, as do Dundee and Angus, and it might be that they consider your experience sufficient instead of nat 5 chemistry. You'd need to contact them to get a definite answer on that...This course in Glasgow can include Nat 5 chemistry, if you're willing to do the commute and don't mind doing other subjects alongside it.
Some schools as well as places like Wallace College (not a standard college, more like tuition/exam centre) would be able to enter you for the exam if you think you'd be able to self learn the course.
There are also other courses that colleges run which may either allow you access to HNC/D to then progress to uni, or to potentially go straight from there to uni, depending on the college course and the uni + course you're wanting to apply to. Before you apply to any of the alternative courses though, make sure you ask the unis you intend to apply for whether they'll accept those qualifications!
