It is not as rosy as it seems with rules changing thick and fast. The UK has a glut of professionals in the medical and pharmaceutical field and are looking to stem the flow sooner than later. Besides with India becoming a participant to the Washington Accord pharmaceutical degree courses in India would be recognized in the UK and other countries for direct employment. Concentrate on your studies and seek work openings. You can then gather some work experience and think about moving elsewhere.
