Founded in 1949, the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (IPSF) is the World Federation which currently represents 350 000 Pharmacy Students and Recent Graduates in  90 countries worldwide. Currently, AEFFUL is a Member in Association (MiA) of IPSF and, therefore, we are not granted Voting Rights on IPSF General Assemblies. IPSF also includes Associação Portuguesa de Estudantes de Farmácia (APEF) and Associação dos Estudantes da Faculdade de Farmácia da Universidade do Porto (AEFFUP), as its members.

IPSF is also a leading International Advocacy Organization for the promotion of Public Health, providing Information, Education and a wide range of Publications and Professional Activities.

The Student Exchange Programme (SEP) is the biggest IPSF project, which allows Students to undertake International Internships, in a wide range of Pharmaceutical areas. AEFFUL receives Incoming Students from all over the world and, together with the SEP Helping Team, organizes activities for them.
