Hi there,
I understand that OSPAP begins in September. Does anyone know if GPhC has a deadline for OSPAP applications? I'm still trying to pass my IELTS and get my application in time to my desired school for 2019 OSPAP.

THANKS.

It’s not a deadline if they receive your application before july then you can have a better chance in your first choice university but also their decision basically allows you two academic years if you didn’t catch the September 19 intake for ospap. I haven’t sorted my application yet as i am still studying for IELTS. I am aiming for Aston university. Also check this this guidance it has all the information you need

Where are you from? And which university ospap are you aiming at?

There's no deadline but try to get your applications in early enough to avoid delays because after the GPHC application and approval process, you still need to consider the time it takes the universities to send their offers to you and the time it takes to complete their requirements and apply for your visa, assuming you require a visa.

I apologize, Dahlia21, for not responding on time. I didn't get a notification for your response. I'm still writing IELTS too, taking another one this April since I had 6.5 in writing in my previous one. I was originally aiming for Aston, but would generally prefer any programme that allows me to have a 2 in 1 combo. That's the Masters/OSPAP combo. I think its cheaper on the long. However, since I'm coming into the UK as a tier 2 dependent, my husband's job location and home proximity will play a major role as I won't be able to afford accommodation.

Are you in the UK already, Dahlia? Can you tell me about some of your experiences?

Thank you emjayy3003, I appreciate your counsel. Currently working on my IELTS as I scored 6.5 in writing. Are you doing OSPAP already? Which school is it? Can you relate some of your experiences?

Anyone who tried the comparative assessment framework? For bachelor’s degree assessed as less than UK bachelor’s degree.

Hello, i am in the same IELTS dilemma 😂, as i am taking one next week hopefully for band 7, i am so tight on time as i wanna catch the September intake in Aston, yes the masters degree is cheaper on the long term. I live in Coventry also on Tier 2 dependent as my husband works here. I just started working as a counter assistant in a pharmacy to familiarize myself with the system coz it’s a bit different to what i am used to in Egypt.
Just try to have ur application sent for the council before July to catch the September intake. Where r u studying Ielts from? It’s literally my nightmare 😂

Hi. You can download Cambridge 1-10 to practice. They would help a lot.

I am taking IELTS next month. As long as you pass your requirements before July, there’s a bigger chance of getting a slot at uni. :-)

OK Masha Allah. I'm originally from Nigeria but I'm relocating on tier 2 from Saudi Arabia. It's nice that you took up a job. How were u able to get it? Is it at a local pharmacy or online? Cos I'll be needing a job as soon as we relocate too and don't have a clue on the British way of doing things.

Currently prepping for IELTS with friend too. A bit challenging, I might add.

Do u mean by UK NARIC? I'm about to do mine. Did they assess yours as less? Is it a B. Pharmacy degree? And when did this happen?

Yes. It’s just comparable to HND w/ RQF Level 5. So less than a level to bachelor’s degree. Now I need to do the comparative assessment framework using the syllabus from my university which will be fine I think since we have covered more pharmacy stuff in my university.

From which country are you though? I think mine is less because of our education system in the Philippines but the pharmacy modules we have are definitely complete.

I guess you did not send your educational transcripts to UK NARIC yeah? Otherwise they might have assessed based on that.

Does anyone have any idea on scholarships and grants for OSPAP/Masters in any of the five schools? Particularly for people on tier 2 visa (not student visas or commonwealth scholarships)

I know Sunderland automatically gives £1000 scholarship as long as you're an international student.

Hi guys. How did you pay for the application? I mean, is it safe to just fill up the form and give your card details?

Hello, yes it's relatively safe. Which is why when you send your application, use a reliable courier service.
