In the UK you need to attend a Catering College Unis do not do cooking. You will need to train in all aspects of cooking not just pastry. You can then specialise as you gain experience. There are very few jobs in the UK that require a pastry chef, most chefs have experience in all areas of cooking.

Restaurants will usually want you to have attended a culinary or pastry school. More upscale restaurants will also request a portfolio that shows your work. However, if you are just looking to open your own business, then you just need to be good at the job.
