Travel Fund

The BPSA International Travel Fund is designed to help members attend international conferences and events. The International Travel Fund is only open to members of the BPSA.

A set number of full- or part-funded places are available for:

  • EPSA events, including Annual Congress, Summer University and Autumn Assembly
  • IPSF events, including World Congress
  • International placements 

EPSA Autumn Assembly

The European Pharmaceutical Students' Association's (EPSA) Autumn Assembly will take place in Poreč, Croatia this year. It’s a great opportunity for students to network with pharmacy students from all over Europe and develop their learning on the theme of “Biological Therapy”. The event will run from October 29th - November 3rd 2019. The registration fee will include accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as the educational and social programme. Students must find their own travel to the event.


To help students access this great international event, the BPSA is offering up to £200 in financial support through the travel fund. Applications to receive funding must be received by the 25th of September 17:00, and you will find out if you are successful by the 2nd of October.

Funding is to be used to assist MPharm students and Pre-registration Pharmacists who would be unable to attend this event without funding support. Before applying for the BPSA Travel Fund, we would encourage you to seek funding support from both your School of Pharmacy as well as your Students' Union.

Please note that the BPSA Travel Fund can only be granted to an individual once per academic year. If you are successful in receiving the BPSA Travel Fund, a letter of confirmation will be sent directly to you as well as a copy to your Head of School or Personal Tutor. Please complete the form as accurately as possible and provide us with enough detail and information to support your application so that we are able to approve as many applications as possible. Successful applicants are required to attend at least 80% of the daily events at EPSA Autumn Assembly or the bursary will be retracted. Successful applicants of the BPSA Travel Fund are expected to represent and uphold the representation of the BPSA when attending events. We also ask that all successful applicants provide the BPSA with an article about their time at the event which will highlight what you have learnt and also what you have gained from the event. Any late entries will not be accepted. You will be informed if you have been successful on the 2nd October so that you can complete registration before it closes on 6th October. If you are successful in receiving the funds, we will transfer you the money on receipt of the acceptance letter and also proof of purchase for travel and the registration fee. Anyone who fails to attend the event for any reason will be liable to return the grant and therefore we recommend you have adequate travel insurance in place to cover cancellations.
