Area Conferences

Scroll down to purchase your tickets for the Autumn Area Conferences!

What are area conferences?

Every year the BPSA holds two rounds of area conferences. Each area holds the first in autumn and the second in spring. If you are looking to get more involved with the BPSA, then attending one of these conferences would be a great first step.

What happens during the conference?

Conferences are one day long and usually held on a Saturday. Lectures, workshops, debates, and interactive sessions make these days action packed. The topics covered at Area Conferences complements that learned on your course, but also, provides an insight into how those skills can be applied in practice in working life. 

Can I only go to an area conference in my area?

You can go to any conference, you don't have to go to the one being held in your area. However, if you do attend your area's conference you are likely to meet other pharmacy students local to you, and one of the most exciting parts of the day is meeting like minded people.

What about lunch?

It's included... and it's free!

Where can I get a ticket?

Tickets are only available to purchase using PayPal via the BPSA website, scroll down to purchase your tickets!

Please note, the tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE, therefore ensure you select the correct conference when buying a ticket.
