International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (IPSF) - Student Exchange Programme (SEP)
- Not Funded
Student Exchange Programme (SEP) is one of the main activities in IPSF. It is a mobility programme that gives students from all over the world the opportunity to get to know pharmacy in a different country. The member associations of IPSF organise the exchanges by finding host sites where the students are trained.
The programme runs throughout the year, but the majority of the exchanges take place between May and September. The length is usually 1 to 3 months, and possible host sites include community pharmacies hospital pharmacies wholesale companies pharmaceutical industry schools of pharmacy government or private health agencies The host may also provide room, board and/or pocket money in addition to the training site in order to help the student.
Participants must be:
- Pharmacy students through an IPSF member association.
- IPSF Individual Members only if they are unable to join an IPSF member association. Check your national IPSF member association here.
In both categories, only a limited number of students can apply, because there are only a limited number of host sites each year.
The TOEFL® test is a popular option for students to meet the English-language requirements for scholarships.
