IPSF

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 IPSF. Read more

Student Exchange Programme (SEP)

The Student Exchange Programme (SEP) is a mobility programme that provides pharmacy students and pre registration pharmacists the unique opportunity to undertake professional work experience and intercultural learning abroad. Currently, over 60 associations worldwide participate in SEP and over 800 international exchanges take place every year. In Great Britain, SEP is coordinated by the BPSA in association with IPSF.
