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.

If you are member of an IPSF member association, contact you SEO for further instructions. The application procedure may involve pre-selection procedures. The SEP Application fee is a minimum of 42 EUR, however, the home association may ask for a larger amount (which must be approved   by the Chairperson of Student Exchange and the SEC) to cover the costs association with organization of these exchanges.


If your country is not in IPSF, or you are not eligible to participate through your home association, you can participate as an Individual member. Individual members take up between 1-2% of   available applications. The application deadline for Individual Members is determined by the Chairperson of Student Exchange and the SEC and is not the same deadline as those set for individual countries. After the deadline, a pre-selection procedure will take place and only the   selected students can participate in the Student Exchange Programme. The selected students have to pay an application fee of 42 EUR before their applications will be approved. If there are questions about being an Individual Member, please contact
