Best Answer

The Doctor of Pharmacy degree takes 8 years of schooling.

Some colleges used to allow students to complete 2-3 years of prerequisites and enter without a degree, but now the federal law requires that you have a bachelor's degree in order to go to a college of Pharmacy. So, 4 years for The Bachelor's degree and 4 additional years for the doctorate.

In the U.S., as of the year 2000, Pharmacy has been a single-level entry degree leading to a Doctorate in Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) in 6 years; residencies are still optional and are 1 year (or 2 years for specialized residencies).

From the US Bureau of Labor

Pharmacists must earn a Pharm. D. degree from an accredited college or school of pharmacy. The Pharm. D. degree has replaced the Bachelor of Pharmacy degree, which is no longer being awarded. To be admitted to a Pharm. D. program, an applicant must have completed at least 2 years of post-secondary study, although most applicants have completed 3 or more years. Further training can include 1-year or 2-year residency programs or fellowships.

You can get a master's degree in any of the following : human Biology, chemistry, physical science, or any other subject in science and then spend 2 years in Pharm. school. That is a total of 8 or 9 years.

UK Answer

After gaining the appropriate A levels, it's a four year master's degree course in university, then one year 'on the job' pre-registration, followed by two registration exams.
