Student Exchange Programme – SEP
The Student Exchange Program (SEP) is a mobility program of IPSF that offers pharmacy students the opportunity to take a look at pharmacy across the border. The program can take place in different sectors of pharmacy, such as in a public pharmacy or hospital pharmacy, in industry or research.
The SEP usually takes place in the summer period for a month. During the SEP you will become acquainted with the pharmacy in one of the nearly 88 participating countries. Often social and cultural activities are organized by and for the students, so there is a chance to get to know (bio) pharmacy students and to discover the city.
The SEP is meant to be a sort of snuffelstage (a one-day internship program from the K.N.P.S.V.) in Groningen it is possible to get credits for it. It is a unique opportunity to broaden your horizons, improve your language skills, learn to communicate and adapt better, and of course it is looks good on your CV. Moreover, it is a nice combination of studying and being on vacation!
Each country has its own Student Exchange Officer who coordinates the program. In the Netherlands, the SEP is coordinated by the commissioner of foreign affairs (CB) of the K.N.P.S.V. He or she seeks SEP places in the Netherlands for foreign students and tries to place Dutch students abroad. In addition, the CB organizes activities for foreign SEP students in the summer, often in collaboration with the IC, to introduce them to Dutch student life and to Dutch culture.
