Student Exchange Programme (SEP)

    The 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.

    Annually, various PARO members participate in hosting students from around the world.

    For any questions, do not hesitate to contact your Local Exchange Officer (LEO) or Student Exchange Officer (SEO).
