Registration as a pharmacist in Ireland (non-EU pharmacists)

If you are a qualified pharmacist and have obtained your qualification from a non-European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country, regardless of nationality, you should follow the non-EU/EEA trained pharmacists route on the PSI website.

This route is a two part process. First you will need to apply for qualification recognition with the PSI.

There are four stages involved in the recognition process. These stages include an equivalence examination and a professional registration examination. Learn more about these stages here.

If recognition of your qualification is successful a certificate will be issued by the PSI. After that you can apply for registration with the PSI.

Like other pharmacists who do not have English as the official language on their countries, you must prove that you have achieved a standard of competence in the English language. Learn more about the PSI language requirements here.

It is important that you meet or exceed the minimum in each of the individually scored components, otherwise your certificate can not be accepted. It's also important that you know that a 5 year bachelor degree is the minimum requirement of education and training in order to apply for registration with the PSI.
