International

Just as Great Britain has the BPSA to represent its students, other countries have their own pharmacy student associations. These associations form a part of a larger umbrella organisation, the International Pharmaceutical Students' Federation (IPSF). The IPSF lobbies international bodies such as the European Medicines Agency, the International Pharmaceutical Federation, and the World Health Organisation to ensure that pharmacy student’s views are represented. With the aim of getting  involved with pharmacy matters internationally and to engage with our international counter parts, the BPSA provides all its members with FREE membership of the European Pharmaceutical Students' Association (EPSA) and the IPSF.

Both the EPSA and the IPSF represent their member associations on a European and International level, respectively. As a BPSA member you will get access to all of the services that these organisations offer. This includes conferences, student exchange programmes, internships, and networking opportunities.

Below are a examples of how members of the BPSA have been involved internationally in the past:
